Application Process 

Go to the Advancing Education at MSU Blackboard course (you may need to login to Blackboard to open this link). Follow the steps as outlined on the course menu. The steps are also listed below to give you a sense of the process.

1. Download and complete the Mini-Grant Application and other forms.

An initial application review by the Instructional Designer will be completed and sent to the Mini-Grant Committee members.

The Mini-Grant Committee will review applications together. Committee members may request clarification and/or specific changes to the proposal. These communications will occur via the Bb Grade Center as feedback to the submission.

If changes and a re-submission are requested, upload your edited version to the same drop box used for the original submission. It will be saved as a separate attempt.

3. Applicants will be notified of award status via email by Thursday, April 30, 2020 at the latest; earlier if possible. The award list will be displayed on this site and in the Bb organization.
