Interdisciplinary Arts Fund: March 30

February 14, 2012, Volume 58, No. 22

The Provost's Interdisciplinary Arts Fund announces a Call for Proposals for the 2012-2013 academic year.

The Interdisciplinary Arts Fund supports arts & culture initiatives at Penn that are collaborative and directly engage students. It 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.

The Fund will ideally support new, cross-disciplinary initiatives. It may also, in some cases, support projects that already exist or are being planned. It accepts proposals each spring term for projects that begin or take place in the following academic year. Programs for the current funding cycle must begin or take place in the 2012-2013 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. Questions can be addressed to Leo Charney in the Office of the Provost (lcharney@upenn.edu).

Proposals are due no later than March 30, 2012, submitted by email to Leo Charney in the Office of the Provost at lcharney@upenn.edu
