Classroom Mini Grants

The Center for Creativity & Arts (CCA) offers the Classroom Creative Arts Mini Grant program to support Emory College faculty using the creative and performing arts to extend and explore the curriculum within the classroom and on Emory's campus.

A Classroom Creative Arts Mini Grant should be used for an activity directly related to a class you are teaching. Anyone currently teaching an Emory College course is eligible, including graduate students, adjunct faculty, visiting faculty, lecturers, or tenure track faculty. Preference will be given to teachers who have not received past grants and for new course offerings. Only one application per faculty member per semester. Only one application per class (i.e. co-teachers can’t both apply for the same class). The request can be up to $300. Please submit an itemized budget for materials and honoraria.


Applications for Fall Semester 2018 will be accepted August 20 - September 17, 2018

Applications for Spring Semester 2019 will be accepted December 17, 2018 - January 14, 2019

Recipients will be notified of funding after the deadline for each semester.

This fund supports:

  • Classroom materials that may not be covered by regular departmental funds
  • Honoraria for guest artists (non-Emory). Honoraria are capped at $75 per class visit.
