Arts Integration Interdisciplinary Research Grants
The Arts Integration Interdisciplinary Research (AiiR) Grant program is designed to support graduate student research projects that integrate the arts or design with other disciplines, especially those in engineering and the sciences. Individual grants up to $3,000 can support existing research efforts as well as new areas of inquiry. Graduate students are eligible to apply if they are in good academic standing, currently enrolled in any graduate degree program, and actively progressing toward that degree at the University of Michigan.
UARTS 250/550: Creative Process
The objective of Creative Process is to de-mystify creativity for students in all U-M units and years: to teach students that creativity is not a character trait or an event, but a process — one that will challenge their sense of competence and mastery, but that they can understand and eventually master, transforming both themselves and their work.
42 Hours of Re_Creativity
Our annual interdisciplinary design/build competition is held annually in March and challenges student teams against the problems inherent in waste, reuse, recycling, and reinvention – with projects that range from the practical to the fanciful to the abstract. Prizes from $500-$1,500 are awarded by a team of invited judges from the ranks of University faculty and staff and industry professionals.
