POCATELLO – Idaho State University’s Office for Research recently awarded more than $51,000 to researchers across campus through the University’s Internal Small Grant (ISG) program and proposals for the spring 2020 ISG program competition are due to Sponsored Programs and Support by March 1.
"I’m pleased to offer this type of internal funding opportunity for ISU's research community. Internal grant programs, like the ISG Program, have a tendency to spark innovation and creativity campus-wide," said Scott Snyder, interim vice president for research and College of Science and Engineering dean.
Twenty-three proposals were submitted and 12 were selected to receive an award of up to $5,000 for proposed research projects.
Each submission was carefully reviewed by ISU’s Research Council. The council is tasked with making recommendations to the Vice President for Research.
During the submission review process, the Research Council places a great emphasis on projects that lead to external funding, have significant benefits to the researcher, artist or the university, or help the applicant progress to the next stage in their research or creative activity.
The ISG program is administered by Sponsored Programs and Support, refined by Office for Research leadership and was reintroduced to the ISU research community in fall 2019. This program is a competition for internal funding designed to expand the capacity for research and creative activity at ISU. Funding for the ISG program comes from Facilities and Administrative Costs resulting from external grant funding.
