At VCUarts, we believe in a future of boundless possibility. We invest in collaborative projects—shaped by artists, designers and performers—that reach across the university.
But most of all, we invest in you. VCUarts offers a range of grant programs designed to help you bring your ideas to fruition, put your education into context through an internship, or explore the arts and culture around the world.
Every year, VCUarts awards money to undergraduate research projects that spark curiosity, creativity, risk-taking and scholarly investigation. Faculty mentors for awarded proposals will receive a $500 research stipend.
Grant awards are $750, and you must be a continuing student in good standing to be eligible. Preference is given to students who have earned an internship in a city, state or country away from home or campus. Grants may be distributed through a scholarship, travel reimbursement, or other means.
The Dean’s International Research Grant program supports independent travel and exploration that informs a student’s research and provides an experience related to their creative or intellectual trajectory. Each year, up to 10 grants of $2,500 are awarded.
