Congratulations to our faculty members who received 2011 Imagine Fund Awards! 151 awards were distributed representing $755,000 in support for research in the arts, design, and the humanities were made in December, 2010, for the 2011 academic year. The programs are supported by a generous grant from the McKnight Foundation, from new internal reallocations from the University of Minnesota Graduate School and the Office of the Vice President for Research, and from the creation of the chairs through the Permanent University Fund.
