There are numerous materials about large grants proposals that UMM either applied for or had the opportunity to do so with the National Science Foundation and the National Endowment for the Humanities. There is a file on Title III and "Cooperative Sioux Indian College." the material for the Sioux Indian College talks about a bilateral agreement between the Sisseton-Wahpeton Sioux College Center and UMM. The two higher education institutions applied together on a grant under Title III. The idea was to get disadvantaged students into higher education. The project in 1974 ended up not being funded.

There is folder on the Gateway program that has materials about the startup of the summer bridge program as well as information about faculty that taught each year of the program. The "Morris Minority Bridge Project Proposal" also alludes to the goals laid out in the U 2000 plan. The projected cost of the Gateway program from 1994-2000 was about $930,000. The funding for the first year of the Gateway program was funded from the Twin Cities program with the help of Josie Johnson.

There is a binder on the West Minnesota Consortium that sponsored programs and informational sessions for women to attend.
