Small Company Innovation Program (SCIP)


The Small Company Innovation Program (SCIP) is an MEDC funded grant program at the University of Michigan that provides co-funded assistance for technology companies in the state of Michigan to work with resources at any of Michigan’s 15 public universities.

Typically, businesses reach out to us with particular technology development, testing, or validation problems and we work to match with a university researcher at any Michigan university and provide matching funds of up to $40k.
