Thanks to generous donor support, the Bucknell Arts Council (BAC) offers grants designed to support individuals or groups of students who wish to pursue serious arts projects or research. All students are potentially eligible for this funding. The BAC reviews grant applications four times a year. Please note that the earlier you apply, the better the chances of receiving a grant as funding may be less available later in the year.
Priority will be given to grants that explicitly involve artistic practice and scholarship. Applications that engage professionalization, such as conference travel and workshop participation, are also encouraged.
There will be two deadlines per semester for reviewing student grants:
- Sept. 15
- Nov. 15
- Feb. 15
- April 15
Please note that all receipts must be turned in by June 15, 2023 in order to be reimbursed.
Grants are available in a range from $100 to $1,500 for individuals and from $100 to $2,500 for groups. Occasionally, additional funds may be available. Students or groups may not receive more than one grant in a single academic year. However, a student may apply for both an individual grant and as the lead for a group grant.
