Texas State Multidisciplinary Internal Research Grant Program (MIRG)
The MIRG program is part of Texas State University’s strategy to strengthen and enhance research and scholarly activity in the quest to become a tier-one research institution. Building a research portfolio responsive to the grand challenges of our society is a critical component of this strategy. These challenges are complex and multifaceted. As such, their solutions require multiple perspectives. The 2019 MIRG program will support multidisciplinary research projects that are responsive to an existing research funding opportunity of an external sponsor. Competitive proposals will have clear plans to apply for external funding within six months of completing the MIRG project. Awards can range from $15,000 to $30,000 for a 12-Month period of support.
