Creative Arts Grants, administered by Duke’s Undergraduate Research Support Office, are provided to help defray project expenses of up to $400 for Trinity and Pratt students enrolled in faculty-supervised Independent Study courses or full-credit private instruction in the creative arts (e.g., Art & Visual Studies, Dance, Literature, Music, Theater Studies).

Funds are available to purchase approved supplies and equipment for the arts project (equipment becomes the property of the University when the project is completed). When strongly recommended by a student’s faculty supervisor, it may be possible to use the grant to support a student’s travel to use a unique resource. Grants may not be used to buy personal books or personal items, or to pay salaries.
