Arts Funding

UAR (Undergraduate Advising and Research) Student Arts Grants

Several types of grants are available to support original, independent creation in all media.  Students interested in undertaking a creative project are eligible for all of the grants offered through Undergraduate Advising and Research.

Departmental Funding

Many departments (i.e. TAPS) may offer discretionary funds to assist with individual art projects. Students should speak to their advisor about this possibility.
