If one of your passions is study and the development of knowledge, this is a great organization for you. From presentations on eclectic topics to study groups loosely organized around a topic of interest, MISF will involve you and pique your curiosity.

If you have a topic you want to pursue in depth, you can get help from MISF to review and critique your work and to assist with obtaining and managing grants.

The Minnesota Independent Scholars Forum offers amazingly diverse programming, there really is something for everyone. I enjoy learning about new subjects and this group does a wonderful job in supporting people pursuing independent investigations. I found the group shortly after moving to the Twin Cities and appreciate the intellectual component it adds to my life. It challenges me to think differently with interesting presentations providing expert views and facts I had never considered before. Sometimes topics of which I previously knew nothing are covered and I leave feeling better informed but concerned with what else I don’t know! The Minnesota Independent Scholars Forum is a group I am easily able to justify supporting.

Minnesota Independent Scholars Forum (MISF) exists to promote independent scholarship, specifically in Minnesota and the Twin Cities area. Scholarship that is "independent" is scholarship that does not owe its existence to any entity other than the scholar himself. As such, MISF is uniquely suited to satisfy an ever-present societal need: an outlet (forum) for scholarship wherever it may exist, independent of academic credentials and affiliation. The continual realization of this need, and MISF's unique fitness to satisfy it, induces me to both take advantage of its opportunities for my own sake and to enthusiastically recommend them to others.
