CIRCA Catalyst Grant

Deadline: rolling

The Center for Innovation, Research, and Creativity in the Arts (CIRCA) invites proposals for the CIRCA Catalyst Grant, to support the incubation of interdisciplinary collaborations within and outside of the Arts. CIRCA Catalyst Grants provide $1000 in support for full-time UMBC Arts faculty (including Lecturers) to spend time exploring potential collaborative endeavors with colleagues from another Arts discipline or a discipline outside of the Arts, with a goal of developing interdisciplinary projects for which they can seek additional funding. The grantee must be a full-time UMBC employee but the collaborator can be from outside UMBC. CIRCA Catalyst Grant awardees are asked to present results of their collaborative conversations in a CIRCA Catalyst presentation during the semester following their award.

To apply, complete the CIRCA Catalyst Grant Application and email it to CIRCA Director Lynn Cazabon (circa@umbc.edu).
