The Interdisciplinary Project Grants Program, sponsored by the Office of the Provost, supports interdisciplinary and collaborative student projects that challenge formal conventions and are experimental in process or approach. Compelling interdisciplinary projects involve a dialogue, merger, or collision of disciplines.

Applications will be reviewed by the Interdisciplinary Project Grant Committee, composed of one faculty member from each School and the Division of Library and Information Resources, and evaluated based on the following criteria:
Grants are available up to $1,500.00. Funded projects may not be awarded the full amount of the request.
Reimbursement Deadline: May 31, 2014
Grants are paid on a reimbursement basis upon the submission of a list of expenses with explanations to the proposed budget line item with original receipts attached. Students may make up to two reimbursement requests, and the first reimbursement request must be at least half of the award amount.
Students who receive grants must submit a report about their completed project to the Office of the Provost in order to receive their final reimbursement.
Grant recipients must submit a report at the conclusion of the project
in order to receive final reimbursement. This report must consist of a 1-2 page description of project activities. Reports are to be submitted by May 31, 2014 to the Office of the Provost. Reports missing for prior year projects will disqualify applicants from consideration for additional grants.
We highly encourage students to visit the Writing Center  prior to submitting an application. A complete application requires the following parts:
1. Cover Sheet
2. Project Description
3. Personal Statements for Lead Artists (400 words or less) – All Lead Artists must submit a Personal Statement which describes your involvement and commitment to the project, as well as how it will advance your artistic development.
4. Budget – Include a one-page budget with an itemized list of all costs of the projects. List the amount you are requesting from the Interdisciplinary Project Grant (up to $1500). If the budget exceeds $1,500, please indicate which additional funds or awards are “secured” or “anticipated.” Please include “budget notes” to clarify how your grant award would be spent or what you would do if you did not receive the full amount of your funding request. Funds cannot be used to pay students, although fees for outside labor may be considered. Funds may not be used to purchase equipment that may later be for personal use such as computers, hard drives, cameras, projectors, etc.; gasoline; alcohol; or food (unless food is used specifically in the project itself).
5. Optional Supplementary
Materials – You may submit up to two 8.5” x 11” pages of supplementary materials. Other materials will not be accepted.
