The Dille Fund for Excellence Grant Awards annually seeks proposals from the campus community for innovative projects that raise the quality of education at Minnesota State University Moorhead. All faculty and staff may apply. Students may be co-applicants on grant applications with faculty and/or staff.
Proposed projects should demonstrate innovation, uniqueness, and a commitment to improved educational experiences for MSU Moorhead students. Awards are typically made in the range of $200-$2,000. The following types of projects are appropriate for Dille Fund grants: faculty research projects that involve students; equipment grants for innovative instructional systems; guest lectures and artists who would share insights and expertise with the campus and community; cooperative community projects that encourage university/community interactions; and special projects involving a particularly innovative idea. No sabbaticals, faculty/staff compensation, leaves with pay, or foreign travel will be supported by the Dille Fund for Excellence.
