Mini grants support transformative learning by encouraging a variety of research, creative, and scholarly activities by faculty at UCO in all disciplines.


Mini Grants are intended to provide support for pilot studies or projects that do not have substantial budgetary requirements while engaging students as research collaborators.

Faculty who have received a grant through the ORSP for 3 consecutive years and have not applied for external funding (private, state, or federal) are ineligible to apply for a 4th year.

If your project requires an IRB approval, an IRB application does not need to be completed at the time of your on-campus grant application but the IRB approval must be obtained before your research project begins.  For more information on the IRB application process, visit the website:
