Consortium Research Awards

Each year, the Consortium provides funding for intramural projects related to the societal implications of problems in health, environment, and the life sciences. We are awarded more than $1.4 million since 2000. Grant opportunities will be announced in November 2018 for work during the summer 2019 and academic year 2019-20. Our funding for the past few years has been to UMN graduate and professional students. Awards are provided as a stipend for research and writing and funding for research supplies, or funding for a program or colloquia for the upcoming summer and/or academic year.

Specific requests for proposals will be announced in early November 2018. Please check this website at that time for details.
