the temporary rules that the IGEM Council is developing to guide the process
for distributing IGEM Innovation Grants.

Council also oversees the Idaho Global Entrepreneurial Mission Grant Fund,
which includes $950,000 appropriated by the Idaho State Legislature for grants.
IGEM Grant Funds will leverage
private-industry guidance and the talent and expertise of Idaho’s research
