The CCA Grant Program offers direct financial support for the development of new, experimental, and exceptional arts projects by Cornell students, faculty, programs and departments. Project grants are awarded annually with the expectation that supported work will be shared with the university and Ithaca community through an openly accessible exhibition, installation, performance, workshop, lecture, and/or other public event. The intention of the grant program is to foster a vital environment for the creative arts on Cornell’s main campus and its satellite locations and to connect Cornell artists to the art world at large.
The grant program is particularly interested in promoting original, emergent and critically-engaged art forms and ideas. Work that takes an interdisciplinary or transdisciplinary approach is strongly encouraged. Successful past applicants have used grant funds to create exceptional work in a myriad of formats including painting, sculpture, prints, wearable designs, clothing, prose, poetry, new media, video, film, software, site-specific installations, music concerts, new music compositions, designed objects, built environments, conferences, workshops, residencies, dance, performances, journals, zines, student-curated exhibitions, and social practice collaborations.
