The Innovation Fund
The Innovation Fund provides grants to students, faculty, and staff to support ideas that foster creativity, facilitate collaboration, and help us reach new levels of excellence.
Innovation Unbound challenges us to imagine Butler as the institution it can become, without constraints.
Butler wants to invest in ideas that will help put our University on the map; ideas that will help us reach new levels of excellence, especially in the areas of teaching and learning. We want to foster creativity and facilitate collaboration. We want to encourage innovation and the use of new technologies. We want to enhance our existing programs and help support our mission.
Submit your idea
We invite faculty, staff, and students to submit their ideas. Why? Because we think great ideas can come from any member of our community. Since launching the Innovation Fund in 2012, the University has invested in 28 projects.
