The Center for Creativity & Arts offers grants to Emory undergraduate students, faculty, and staff to pursue creative scholarship and artistic projects that are original in nature. Applicants are encouraged to use the grants as opportunities to experiment and cultivate new forms of artistic work.

At Emory, we believe that creativity is fundamental to original and effective scholarship, and CCA provides undergraduates with the opportunity for creative production and thoughtful discourse, while stimulating continuing exploration and excellence among Emory faculty and staff.
