The Imagine Fund
Application for Single Course Release Support Funds
A limited number of single course releases will be available to tenured or tenure-track
University of Minnesota faculty each year. Applicants must be appointed to an arts,
humanities, or design department.
The Imagine Fund Single Course Release Support Funds program provides funds to
buyout one course of teaching to enable a faculty member to complete a dynamic new or

release funding may not be combined with any other form of leave support such as a
single semester leave or fellowship.
