The Cornell Council for the Arts (CCA) announces the annual competition for the CCA Individual Grant Program.  CCA grants offer direct financial support for the development of new, experimental, and exceptional arts projects to be shared with the University and Ithaca community.

The CCA welcomes proposals from individual artists, artists’ groups, artistic collaborations, and those who do not identify as artists.  Proposals are welcome for projects that expand the boundaries of any given arts, design, or related discipline in a creative and culturally reflective way.

Grants are awarded annually up to $2,500 each to faculty, departments, and programs; and $1,000 each to individual students and registered student organizations.

Who can apply?  Cornell students and faculty in residence who will be affiliated with Cornell in the 2022-23 academic year.

What types of projects are funded?  The CCA is particularly interested in promoting original, emergent, and critically engaged art forms and ideas.  Projects that take an interdisciplinary or transdisciplinary approach are strongly encouraged.

When will projects be exhibited?  All projects must be exhibited during the 2022-23 academic year.
