The School of the Arts is providing funding for arts students to conduct interdisciplinary creative and scholarly research projects focusing on a theme. These grants can be up to $1,000 with additional funds for exhibiting, presenting, performing, or publishing project results. There are also incentives for departments with participating students, as well as for the faculty sponsors. See attached flyer for details!
