The Rocket Grants program was launched in 2009 by the Charlotte Street Foundation in Kansas City, MO and the KU Spencer Museum of Art in Lawrence, KS, in partnership with the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts. The program aims to fuel the energy of the Kansas City regional visual arts community by encouraging and supporting innovative, public-oriented work in non-traditional spaces.
Rocket Grants enable individuals and groups of artists to take new risks with their work, push the scope and scale of their activities, develop and pursue collaborative projects, and engage with the public and public realm in inventive and meaningful ways. With the specific goals of developing new kinds of audiences and providing frameworks for the growth of further experimentation, awarded projects create unconventional and expansive forms of interaction, exchange, provocation, and surprise.
Now in its third year, the Rocket Grants program has awarded $121,000 in direct funds to thirty projects, involving at least seventy-two artists working in multiple media. Hundreds of other artists have been integrally and peripherally included in the performances, publications, workshops, artist-run spaces, videos, public installations, events and websites that the awards have funded. To learn more about this program and the projects supported byRocket Grants please explore this site.
The Andy Warhol Foundation has invested in the creation of a growing national network of regional re-granting programs – supporting Alternative Exposure in San Francisco, California; The Idea Fund in Houston, Texas; and The Propeller Fund in Chicago, Illinois in addition to the Rocket Grants program. The Foundation aims to support the independent creative activity of artists by partnering with leading artist-centered, visual arts organizations across the country.

ECM at KU is having an Arts Fundraiser during the September 28 Final Fridays festivities. They are looking for student artists who would like to display their art at the fundraiser and help support the ECM by donating pieces of their work.
Interested students--who create paintings, pottery, jewelry, posters, and other crafts--would offer a piece or two to display at the ECM on Friday September 28th from 5-8pm. If they're piece was purchased that night, all proceeds would go to support the ECM Fall Programming budget.
For the students, this is a great way to get out into the Lawrence arts community and network and make connections. They could hang out at the ECM--where there will be live music, refreshments, and local art patrons--and meet other artists and community members, while their pieces were on display.
The ECM contact for this event is Ariday Guerrero, and she can be reached at 785-843-4933 or email@example.com.

Funding Available For Internationalizing Courses
DEADLINE: APRIL 16, 2012
As part of an on-going effort to internationalize the curriculum at KU, International Programs is offering an $850 stipend to tenured and tenure-track faculty who develop a new international course or significantly revise an existing course to make it more international. Proposals for courses that meet the academic requirements for the undergraduate Global Awareness Program (GAP) are especially welcomed. According to the GAP guidelines, these courses must have: (1) a significant, modern emphasis, with 50% or more of the content being from the 20th and 21st centuries; and, (2) an international focus, with 50% or more non-U.S. material. All proposals are welcome, but courses taught mainly to undergraduate students, and those which will impact a substantial amount of students, will receive preference. All proposed courses must be taught on the Lawrence or Edwards campus. Proposals for study abroad courses will not be considered.
All applicants who are selected for the program will be asked to participate in a two hour “Internationalization of the Curriculum” workshop on “stop day”, Friday, May 4, 2012, to present their ideas for the course and discuss ways of internationalizing the curriculum with other interested KU faculty. Faculty who participated in the 2010 and 2011 workshops are not eligible to apply for single grants.
Interested participants are invited to submit a short proposal (two to three pages, double-spaced) that includes: (1) a narrative description of the new course, or how a preexisting course will be substantially revised; (2) the course title and a (possible) course number; and, (3) a discussion of the potential impact you expect the course to have on KU’s international posture. The proposal should indicate whether or not the course is undergraduate or graduate, the expected enrollment, whether or not it is intended as a principal course, and the frequency with which it will be offered. It is expected that the course will be offered sometime during the next two academic years and that it will be offered at least three times within the next six-year period. Faculty from all academic disciplines are invited to submit proposals.
· The deadline for proposals is Monday, April 16. All proposals should be submitted to Brent Steele, International Programs, 300 Strong Hall, or by email: email@example.com, no later than 5:00 p.m. on that day.
· The department chair and/or dean, as appropriate, must endorse all proposals.
· Successful applicants will be notified on or before Monday, May 2.
· The workshop for program participants is scheduled for “stop day”, Friday, May 4, 10:00 a.m.-12:00 noon in the Parlor Room, Level 5 of the Kansas Union
· Attendance by participants in the full program of the workshop is required in order to receive the stipend.
· Participants will receive $850 to assist with the planning of the proposed course and for participation in the workshop.
· Participants will be asked to submit to International Programs a brief report on the new or revised course and a syllabus after it is offered.
· For more information, please contact Brent Steele, Director of Faculty Programs, 864-6161 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
