Frequently Asked Questions

President Perman explaining something to a group of individuals

Do I need letters of support from international or non-UMB partners? 

No, support letters from international/non-UMB partners are not required but are highly regarded in the application process.

My project does not take place abroad, but aligns with some of the funding priorities. Am I still eligible? 

A funded project typically involves partners that are outside of the United States to enhance UMB’s global engagement and reach. Given that, the review committee would look closely at your project’s connection to larger global phenomena.

Can I submit a multi-year application? 

Yes, you can apply for one-, two-, or three-year awards up to $50,000 per year, with a maximum of $150,000 over three years.

If you have any additional questions, please email Virginia Rowthorn for more information.
