Did you know that MSU issues internal funding opportunities each year? These MSU resources are provided by the Office of Research and Innovation and other MSU units. Funding amounts vary to support areas where other federal, state, and local funding dollars may not be available.
Internal Grants: The Grant Proposal System
is used for submitting proposals for research funding programs administered by the Office for Research and Innovation. These programs are funded through the generosity of the Michigan State University Foundation. Visit the FAQ page for commonly asked questions on the Grant Proposal System. Check out examples of internal MSU grants and funding opportunities below.
Internal MSU grants and funding opportunities might yield the resources you need to help elevate your research. Be sure to check out each resource above. If you have additional questions regarding internal MSU grants and funding opportunities, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Subject: 2022 January Travel Updates
I hope that your 2022 is off to a great start. Some information and updates that may impact Spartan travelers is below.
Enterprise and National Car Rental reminder:
Recently, there have been some issues related to MSU travelers running in to higher-than-expected rental car pricing or, worse, loss damage waiver insurance not included with reservations. In each case, it was because the MSU renter had not updated their Emerald Club profile per the September 2021 listserv email (see att.). If you have not yet done so, please take a moment to review the attached email and follow the steps outlined there.
TripIt Pro COVID-19 enhancement:
As an MSU employee, you have access to TripIt Pro edition. TripIt Pro is a mobile app that enables travelers to check in one place for all of their trip details, and get notifications as things happen throughout your trip.
If traveling on approved MSU business, Michigan Flyer costs can be reimbursed as part of an Expense Reimbursement request. This includes if booking on behalf of a guest and paying on behalf of that guest.
Whether you are an experienced Concur Guru or easing back in to Concur Request | Travel | Expense, Travel@State provides a host of helpful resources in the Education section Reference Library. User guides, How To’s, new video’s, and more. We hear frequently that users are rusty because it has been a year or 2 since accessing Concur. Fear not -- Travel@State has the tools and tips that will help refamiliarize you with Concur.

NYSCF is soliciting applications from early career investigators for awards in neuroscience. The goal of this initiative is to foster innovative, emerging scientists whose pioneering approaches have the potential to transform the field of neuroscience. For the 2022 application cycle, applicants are invited to apply from all fields in neuroscience. NYSCF is committed to supporting a broad range of neuroscience research areas representative of the field, taking into account the immense progress and changes in the field in the last decade. To that end, NYSCF especially encourages applications from neuroscientists whose research areas may be under-supported by traditional funding mechanisms and/or underrepresented in the field as a whole (see examples on next page) or by previous recipients of the Awards.
We especially encourage applications from neuroscientists conducting substantial research in emerging, dynamic and/or underfunded research areas and with technologies that have the potential to be transformative for the field at large, for example in the fields of:
psychiatry and mental health research
epidemiological or population-level studies using real-world human data
disease research in humans or on human populations
ELIGIBILITY CRITERIA To be eligible, applicants must:
Have completed one or more of the following degrees: MD, PhD, DPhil
Be within 6 years of starting a faculty (professorship) or comparable position on June 1, 2022 (Note: an additional year of eligibility was added as a result of the COVID-19 crisis)
Independently supervise a research team as head of group/laboratory
Have a publication record containing articles that are innovative and high impact
NYSCF will accept applications from researchers based at domestic and international accredited non-profit research and academic institutions. Applicants can, but need not, be working in stem cells or related areas and preference will not be given whether the project involves stem cells or not. NYSCF is committed to fostering diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging in STEM. Overcoming the impact of systematic racism, sexism, and other discrimination that has systematically marginalized certain groups from STEM research is critical for a productive, innovative scientific community. NYSCF strongly encourages applications from scientists of all ethnicities, cultures, religions, nationalities, abilities and disabilities, sexes, gender identities, sexual orientations, geographic locations, and socioeconomic statuses.
Please note this is a career development award, not a project-specific award, and funds may be used at the discretion of awardees to increase the impact of their research, subject to the terms of the award letter.
Description: The first seminar of 2022 will engage individuals from DER, OSP, and CGA to provide an overview of the lifecycle of an award - from proposal development to award close-out. Join us for a clearer understanding of the roles and responsibilities at each stage. You will be better prepared to submit fundable proposals and to effectively and efficiently manage subsequent awards from start to finish with the help of your MSU support system. All researchers are welcome and are encouraged to be prepared with any questions.. Watch it now on demand!!!
