Welcome to the Imagine Fund Grant Programs

The Imagine Fund is an initiative of the Executive Vice President and Provost, established through a generous gift from the McKnight Foundation to provide competitive financial support for research and scholarship in the arts, humanities, and design at the University of Minnesota.

The Imagine Fund has been administratively restructured to further strengthen the commitment to advancing the arts, humanities, and design through strategic collaborations.
