The artsCatalyst grant brings perspectives from disparate fields into the same classroom to create interdisciplinary arts experiences.


artsCatalyst Grants are used to subsidize class trips to performances and exhibitions; guest visits to classes and studios; and materials for course projects and productions. Examples of successful grants might include taking a history class to see a theater production; inviting a physicist to visit a dance course; or materials for a political science course to make films.

Grant Details

These grants are available to faculty and academic staff members for undergraduate and graduate courses in any department or school. Activities or guest speakers should incorporate an art discipline or perspective from outside that of the hosting department. Instructors may apply for up to $1,500 per course.
