Grants for Students

Student Arts Innovation Grant

This award, granted once a year, will be given to a student (undergraduate or graduate student) to exhibit, perform, or showcase an original work on UNC’s campus. The selected student will receive $1000 to construct their piece, which must be displayed or performed on campus within a year after receiving the award.

An interdisciplinary committee of faculty and staff members from across the university’s arts departments and institutions will select the recipient, and the winner will be announced at a small ceremony each April.
