Also, read more about Mizzou Advantage’s $50,000 in matching fund opportunities for hiring new faculty as well as the Chancellor’s fund for recruiting world class scholars into endowed chairs.

Mizzou Advantage funds are intended to help elevate MU’s stature, support transformative research and deliver high impact outcomes. In order to invest as strategically as possible and ensure a fair evaluation process, a formal call for proposals will be posted and communicated. Proposals will be evaluated on their strengths and ties to Mizzou Advantage’s goals. Mizzou Advantage typically does not provide funding for unsolicited requests that do not conform to our structured evaluation process.  If you have a time-sensitive need for Mizzou Advantage investment in order to act on an unanticipated, high impact opportunity,  please contact a Mizzou Advantage facilitator to discuss.
