VCUarts Dean’s Faculty Exploratory Grants

The Dean’s Faculty Exploratory Grant program provides funding to support research at the developmental stage where no definitive outcomes may be predicted. These projects allow faculty to conduct new research, explore new media, or collaborate in experimental ways.  A selection committee composed of faculty from a cross-section of arts and design disciplines makes award recommendations to the Dean. Exploratory grants are intended to assist faculty in developing research that could lead to successful applications for Faculty Research Grants and/or external funding opportunities.

The next round of applications will be due in September 2018. Please follow the link at the bottom of this page to apply.
