UM-Flint provides grant development support, external funding application review, internal UMF internal seed funding, undergraduate research support, compliance services, project reporting and regulatory guidance, and coordinates funded research management with the U-M Office of Research (UMOR) and the Office of Research and Sponsored Projects (ORSP).



The Office of Research supports faculty research through internally-funded awards.

  • InfoReady is a web-based product for managing internal competitions and helps ease administrative and faculty burden.
  • The Research Commons promotes internal funding opportunities from across campus so faculty can generate support to advance research and scholarship.
  • University research teams should work side-by-side with community groups and organizations to enhance learning for students while increasing the capacity of the community.
  • The Flint Truth and Action Partnership Project (FTAAPP) has been established at the University of Michigan-Flint to support faculty/community collaboration in efforts to empower residents and stakeholders that lead to improved education, health, employment, and overall well-being in response to the water and lead crisis in Flint.

  • University Outreach's Civic Engagement Course Implementation Grant Program offers support for the costs of civic engagement activities in courses with the UM-Flint Civic Engagement Course Indicator.


Funding for your project can come from a variety of sources including foundations, federal agencies, and state and local entities.
