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 Course Development Grant
Open to all Faculty Members
The UARTS Faculty Course Development Grant program is offered through ArtsEngine at U-M, and designed to support the development of courses to be offered under the UARTS pre-fix, and that integrate the arts and design with other disciplines, especially those in engineering and the sciences.
Individual grants of up to $2,500 are available, and can support improving or changing an existing course to meet the UARTS criteria, as well as developing new courses. Additional grant funds (up to $5,000) may be made available to develop new specific UARTS courses – to fulfill a requested pre-requisite or some other identified unmet need. These special grants, with any additional criteria, may have separate application, submission and review requirements.
Interdisciplinary Visiting Scholar Grant
The ArtsEngine Interdisciplinary Visiting Scholar Grant is designed to encourage the inclusion of guest artists, instructors, or practitioners from outside the primary course discipline. In general, this means someone who would not typically be appointed to teach in your school or college (so a sculptor in a drawing class would not typically qualify, neither would a mechanical engineer in a chemical engineering class. However, a musician in a mechanical engineering class would meet this baseline criteria). Exceptions may be considered on a case-by-case basis. Arts or design must be represented, either in the primary course discipline or in the discipline of the visiting scholar.
Grants up to $1,000 are available to any faculty member or instructor appointed in one of the four North Campus schools and colleges.
