Interdisciplinary Arts Fund: April 1

Provost Vincent Price is pleased to announce a new Interdisciplinary Arts Fund, in support of collaborative arts & culture initiatives that directly engage students.

The Fund aims to advance the role of arts & culture in student and academic life, as well as the development of interdisciplinary, cross-campus partnerships. Priority will be given to projects that aspire to engage a wide range of students and bring together multiple groups—especially collaborations among arts & culture organizations and academic departments or centers—as well as those that contribute to a campus-wide academic theme year. 

The Fund will ideally support new programs and initiatives; it may also, in some cases, support projects that already exist or are being planned. It will accept proposals each spring term for initiatives and programs that begin or take place in the following academic year. Programs and initiatives for the current funding cycle must begin or take place in the 2011-2012 academic year. 

Proposals should consist of a project narrative (no more than three pages) and detailed budget. The narrative section must include an explanation of how the project will engage students, bring together multiple partners, and impact the Penn community. Projects may be funded in whole or in part; therefore, there are no maximum or minimum dollar amounts for proposals.

Proposals are due no later than Friday, April 1, 2011, submitted by e-mail to Mr. Charney at lcharney@upenn.edu
