Diversity Grants

CalArts offers several funding opportunities for faculty and students to support projects and performances related to diversity and multiculturalism. 

Intercultural Arts Project Committee (ICAP) Grant

Established at CalArts in 1988 to help increase and sustain the presence of artists from many cultures (emphasis on artists who live and work beyond the Eurocentric sphere while maintaining the aesthetic perspective of their specific backgrounds). The Project seeks to foster the mutual exchange of aesthetic, social, and political concerns through artistic interaction among diverse artists, the CalArts community, and the wider constituencies of Southern California.

Diversity Grant

Modest seed grants of $300 are available to fund student projects in support of diversity at CalArts through interaction, education and practice. Collaborative proposals involving participants from more than one School are encouraged, and projects must be open and accessible to the Institute as a whole. It is important to clearly articulate how your project promotes diversity. Please note that this grant does not support travel. Grant applications are reviewed by the Grants Subcommittee of the Equity & Diversity Committee.

Current students can find more information about this opportunity on the Awards & Project Support section on the Hub.
