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.
