About Mcubed

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!

Unique Mcubed research funding program begins third cycle
University Record
Mcubed 3.0 now open!

Mcubed was launched as a grassroots effort by a team of faculty members to help catalyze innovative research projects without traditional peer review. The conventional grant review process often takes months and can prove too big a hurdle for a new team with a novel idea to clear.

As part of Mcubed, faculty from at least two different units can form a collaborative trio, or cube, and request either $15,000 or $60,000 to advance their idea right away.

Mcubed 3.0, which runs from 2018-2020 is now open! Requests for cubes are being accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. For more information on how to form a cube, read here
