MSI Partnership Program

Description of the Minority Serving Institution Partnership Program.

The Minority Serving Institution Partnership Program provides financial support in the form of grants for UW-Madison graduate programs, school/colleges, and other campus collaboratives to create new and nurture existing relationships with MSIs. Proposals to participate in our inaugural cohort were accepted through April 7, 2023 via SurveyMonkey Apply

Grant proposals should focus on creating long-term and mutually beneficial relationships in areas such as research collaborations, faculty professional development, creation of collaborative activities, and exchange programs for faculty, staff, and students.  
We hope programs can leverage these relationships to recruit and enroll students from partnering MSIs, though proposals with objectives only focused on student recruitment will not be considered for the program.  
  • Grants are available up to $25,000
  • The funding period is two years 
  • Each grant recipient is eligible to receive the grant once in a ten-year period.
