The University of Michigan’s Revolutionary Way of Funding Research

Mcubed stimulates innovative research and scholarship by distributing real-time seed funding to multi-unit, faculty-led teams.

Through this first-of-its-kind research funding program, faculty from at least two different campus units can form a collaborative trio, or “cube,” and request either $60K or $15K to advance their idea right away.

Housed in the University of Michigan Office of Research (UMOR), Mcubed is part of the Third Century Initiative, established by the president and provost. Building upon U-M’s excellence and spirit of cooperation across disciplines, Mcubed makes great ideas go!
