VCUarts Dean’s Faculty Research Grants

The Dean’s Faculty Research Grant program provides funding to support the final stages of research for which venues for dissemination have been determined. In most cases, Research Grants are awarded for specific art and design activities that have been invited or endorsed by peer review. Ideally, applicants have confirmation that they will be presenting, exhibiting, performing or sharing their work in an appropriate context, amongst professionals or for a significant public audience. The venues for realization of research results are a determining factor in the award of grants. Research grants typically support faculty exhibition, demonstration, activity, publication, or performance in national and international contexts. A selection committee composed of faculty from a cross-section of arts and design disciplines makes award recommendations to the Dean. Previous recipients may reapply for support annually. This opportunity does not fund retroactive expenses for a past exhibit or performance.

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