School of the Arts Student Collaboration Grant

Student Collaboration Grant

In the spirit of collaboration, the School of the Arts at EIU is offering grants to undergraduate and graduate students for cross-disciplinary creative efforts. Students from Art, Music and/or Theatre may apply. The SOA committee will select and support eligible proposals that a) incorporate two or more students from multiple areas (art, music, theatre), and b) offer a creative output that showcases combined efforts from such disciplines. Project proposals may incorporate visual, experiential, aural, and/or performance-related outputs.


· All students must be in good standing with a minimum 2.00 GPA

· All proposals must include a minimum of TWO of the three arts disciplines (art, music, theatre).

· All team members must be enrolled full-time for the current semester.

· A copy of the finished project must be supplied to the SOA upon completion, or publicly displayed, performed, or exhibited.

· All work must be completed, published, and/or submitted by December 21, 2024*
*Any student group that is unable to submit the required paperwork and proof of completion of their project by the deadline, will be ineligible for future SOA Grant opportunities.
