Awards for Creative Activity

Dear colleagues,

The chancellor, provost and vice chancellor for research are pleased to announce the 2022 Awards for Creative Activity, a seed funding program to support scholarship in the arts, humanities and social sciences. We plan to allocate up to $750,000 to stimulate new projects and support broad dissemination of ongoing work.

Awards will fall under three categories: fine, performing and applied arts; the humanities; and the social sciences. Awards will be made for two types of projects: creative activity and creative activity dissemination. The final number of funded projects is contingent upon submission of a sufficient number of meritorious applications and availability of funds.

Letters of intent are due Monday, Feb. 21. Full proposals will be due Monday, March 28. Award announcements will be made in May for project start dates in June.

Any questions regarding this announcement can be sent to Please visit the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research website for additional information and to submit applications.
