    • Funds can be put towards materials, artist fees and honoraria (funds cannot be used to pay Emory faculty or students). Requests for equipment and software are not funded unless unavailable through college resources, in which case Emory Arts may purchase equipment or software and loan to grant applicant.
    • Travel expenses are supported for visiting artists only.
    • Projects assigned as part of a class are not eligible for funding.
  • Out There Arts

    Take advantage of Out There Arts (OTA) funding to discover Atlanta's thriving arts scene. OTA covers all or part of the cost of admission to arts events off campus. Transportation costs may also be covered on a case-by-case basis.

    • Groups can apply for up to $400
    • Student organizations, residence halls, independent groups, and faculty members are eligible to apply
    • Faculty may apply for only one OTA grant per semester for a single course.
    • Submit your request at least two weeks in advance of the event date (or ticket purchase date).
  • Classroom Mini Grants

    Classroom Creative Arts Mini Grants support the enhancement of Emory courses via the creative and performing arts. This can include supporting visiting artists, in-class screenings, or class projects. Funding is restricted to supporting activities directly tied to a class.

    • This fund supports up to $300 in classroom materials that may not be covered by regular departmental funds or honoraria for non-Emory guest artists ($75 per visit cap).
    • You may submit only one application per semester and only one application per course (i.e. co-teachers cannot both apply for the same course).
    • We do not fund the purchase of technology/hardware (computers, voice recorders, iPads, etc.), food, or drink.
    • This grand does not fund activities off campus. For off campus events, please see the Out There Arts program.
    • Applications for Emory College Courses will be given priority.
  • Goldwasser Fund

    The David Goldwasser Series in Religion and the Arts was established in 1980 at Emory University in memory of David Goldwasser, a 1932 graduate of Emory College. The series is intended to keep alive for generations of students Mr. Goldwasser's appreciation of art and faith as enriching dimensions of the human spirit by supporting performances and exhibitions with implicit or explicit religious significance.
