Imagine Fund grant programs support projects in the arts, humanities, and design at the University of Minnesota. This initiative of the Executive Vice President and Provost is supported by a generous grant from the McKnight Foundation. The three Imagine Fund grant programs support 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 the arts, humanities, and design.
For the current award cycle, we encourage proposals that center, imagine, and re-imagine racial justice and social justice within the arts, humanities, and design.
