Graduate Research Grants: Spring 2013

We are excited to announce that we have added a third granting cycle - with applications due Friday, July 26th.

Posted 03.01.13

Graduate Research Development Grants are small grants awarded twice a year to current MFA, MA and Post-Bac students, up to $500, designed to further research and creative projects. Additional funding is made possible each year from the proceeds of the Masters Art Sale, an annual sale of graduate student art work. Congratulations to this Spring's eleven recipients. We look forward to finding opportunities for these students to share the good work that will undoubtedly come from their varied experiences.
