Internal Small Grant Program (ISGP)


The purpose of the Internal Small Grant Program (ISGP) is to expand the capacity for research and creative activity at ISU.   The Office for Research (OR) makes funding available for this program and relies on the ISU Research Council (RC) to make recommendations to the Vice President for Research in as fair and as transparent a way as possible and supports all areas, types and disciplines of research and creative activity by all full-time ISU faculty.  Funding for ISGP comes from Facilities and Administrative (F&A) Costs resulting from external grant and contract funding.

The RC places special emphasis on recommending for funding faculty projects that lead to external funding or some other significant benefit for the researcher or artist and/or the university, which help the applicant get to the “next level” in their research or creative activity.
