CCA@CCA Faculty Grants Program

APPLY NOW to receive up to $1000 in grant support for your fall 2022 course efforts tied to voting and democratic engagement.

Leading up to the United States Midterm Election on November 8th, the goal of the CCA@CCA Faculty Grant Program program is to support the implementation of small-scale, immediate public-facing projects or activations that aim to improve the learning experience of students and offer critical resources for civic involvement. All faculty who are actively teaching at CCA in fall 2022 are invited to submit proposals. Recipients receive funding and organizational support from the CCA Exhibitions team, and outcomes will be featured in the Deborah and Kenneth Novack Creative Citizens Series, social media, and CCA@CCA Archive.
