Rapid Funding



CIGLR provides funding up to $10,000 to principal investigators and students from University Partner institutions who need short-term funds to form an initial response to an emergency or time-sensitive need in the Great Lakes (e.g., Flint water crisis, Toledo water crisis, oil or chemical spills, etc.). Decisions on rapid proposals can be made internally in 3 days, and they provide the seed funding researchers need to be ‘first-responders’ even as they solicit more substantial funds from an appropriate agency or organization.

Please contact CIGLR Director Brad Cardinale (bradcard@umich.edu) for more information or to apply for rapid funds.
