Sustainability incentive program
In an effort to encourage sustainability research, the Graham Sustainability Institute is offering incentives for three cubes to form a "block," essentially a mini center, to work on a sustainability problem. The block will receive an additional $10,000, office space and staff support. The block could be made of mini cubes or classic cubes. Interested researchers should email John Callewaert at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Bicentennial incentive program
Cubes that aim to enhance understanding of a Bicentennial theme with respect to U-M’s history, present or future could be eligible for additional support. Cubes must also agree to report results during the Bicentennial year in a way that supports the mission, such as at a Bicentennial festival or other event.
Selected cubes will receive an additional $6,000. Mini cubes will receive $1,500. The Bicentennial Office will promote the projects. Interested researchers should email Gary Krenz at email@example.com.
