About the Imagine Fund

Imagine Fund grant programs support projects in the arts, humanities, and design at the University of Minnesota. The three Imagine Fund programs support leading-edge, innovative lines of research or scholarship that may not otherwise be possible. Awards often leverage investments and funds from other sources in support of projects in arts, humanities, and design.

An initiative of the Executive Vice President and Provost, the programs are supported by a generous grant from the McKnight Foundation; additional contributions have come from the Provost's Office, Graduate School, and the Office of the Vice President for Research, and from the creation of the chair through the Permanent University Fund.
