***Due to travel warnings and restrictions put in place by the U.S., other countries, and at CalArts, due to COVID-19, the Office of Student Experience and the Patty Disney Center for Life & Work have decided to stop awarding funds for any future student travel from Wednesday, March 11th through the end of the fiscal year. This includes the Student Travel Fellowship Program and Student Travel Grants.


The Center for Life and Work intends to resume both the Student Travel Grants and Student Travel Fellowship Program in the fall semester. 


If a student is intending to travel this summer and would like a consultation on external funding opportunities, such as grant applications, please reach out to Bailey Cool at bcool@calarts.eduWe appreciate your understanding.


Student Travel Grant

Current students may apply for a Center for Life & Work Travel Grant to fund travel expenses incurred during creative or academic pursuits and projects, or to support the success of the student’s experience in their program. Travel funds can include airfare, transportation, lodging, and any entrance or registration fees. Travel can occur any time throughout the year and grants will be distributed through reimbursement, based on the amount approved through the application. Awards range between $100 - $300.
