Imagine Fund Grant Programs

Imagine Fund grant programs support projects in the arts, design and humanities 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 Excutive 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 Arts, Design, and Humanities Chair through the Permanent University Fund.

Important Notice

The acceptance of proposals for the second round of Special Event awards has been delayed. Because scheduling activities of any type is uncertain at this point in time, we will wait to reconvene the application process until we know that we are able to plan for and hold events.

If you have been granted an Annual Award or a Special Event award and recent travel/scheduling restrictions are interfering with your planned work, please know that you can delay the use of your money until such restrictions/recommendations have been lifted.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Emily Ronning at ronn0044@umn.edu.
