University Award for Projects in the Arts
through the Center for Undergraduate Excellence

The University Award for Projects in the Arts is intended to expand students’ opportunities for creative expression and showcase significant accomplishments in the arts. The program funds outstanding undergraduate projects in the arts to be carried out in the summer and the upcoming academic year. Each student applicant or group of applicants proposes a project of creative work. Eligible projects might include writing or directing a play or film, writing a collection of poetry, designing costumes for a play, choreographing a dance, creating a sculpture, or composing or performing a piece of music. The University-wide awards are funded by the College, the School of Engineering and Applied Science, the Office of the Vice President and Chief Information Officer, the Center for Undergraduate Excellence, the Vice Provost for Academic Programs, and the Vice Provost for the Arts. They are open to all undergraduates, regardless of schools or majors.
