FIGs applications for Round 20 will be accepted starting April 1, 2015. Applications can be submitted until midnight on April 29, 2015.

Do you have an innovative idea about how to improve a process or procedure in your department or our Health System? If so, you could qualify for a Fostering Innovation Grant (FIG).

FIGs provides UMHS faculty and staff with an opportunity to see their innovative ideas funded, by awarding seed money for the implementation of one- or two-year pilot projects. FIGs has two rounds per year, Fall and Spring, and each round has a budget of $125,000 to be distributed among the most innovative applications.

There are a lot of good ideas, but we are looking for the most innovative ideas to fund. If you've got an innovative idea, you could get FIGs bucks!

If you have any questions about FIGs, please contact: Kara Dunigan at
