The MU-ADVANCE Program offered Mini-Grants to female STEM faculty, both probationary and tenured, to facilitate collaborations and to promote their research careers. During the program's six-year period, 44 Mini-Grants were awarded. These mini-grants were used for travel to national and international conferences, as well as to confer in other investigators' laboratories; to purchase research supplies and equipment; and to prepare manuscripts. These awards were predominately used as travel support. In fact, MU-ADVANCE sponsored travel to more than 100 conferences, totaling more than $185,000.
