  • Total amount of funding available is $25,000.

Proposal Evaluation and Funding Parameters

  • Considerations include: the quality of the program, impact or involvement of students, potential for enhancement of the arts on campus and/or community outreach.
  • Some practical considerations: existing schedule, venue availability, target audience and potential for campus-wide participation. (i.e. Weekend days are an opportunity for community outreach. Also, the Crane Chorus and Crane Symphony Orchestra will perform on April 29, 2017. This is the culminating performance of the Festival and schedule conflicts should be avoided.)

Funding Eligibility

  • Faculty, staff and students may apply.


  • Due by Monday, May 9, 2016.
