The purpose of a Faculty Research Grant (FRG) at Minnesota State Mankato is to encourage excellence in research, scholarship, and creative activities among Minnesota State Mankato faculty by providing seed funding for faculty projects. These grants support faculty initiatives in all disciplines including basic, applied, and pedigogical research and creative projects. The Faculty Research Committee expects that grantees will explore external funding opportunities to continue their work. 

 Addition of External Funding Requirement Rationale

 FRGs were originally designed to provide faculty members with seed money to carry out research or creative projects with the ultimate goal of securing external funding.  Faculty members are now required to describe plans for pursuing and securing external funding, using their FRG-funded research or creative projects.  Grants or other external funding endeavors can come from any source (local, regional, national, international) and can be of any dollar amount.  Faculty members are not required to have secured external funding at the time the FRG report is due, however faculty members must demonstrate substantial progress toward securing external funding.  

Applicants are encouraged to contact the appropriate College representative for guidance on proposal development (see list below).
