The CREATE program supports the development of new artistic works emphasizing the need to address the expenses directly related to the research and production and presentation of new creative work.
There are expenses involved with the creation of almost any artistic work. Sometimes projects are abandoned simply due to these expenses.
The Dean of the College of Liberal Arts will appoint a committee of faculty to review proposals and make funding recommendations to the Dean. The Associate Dean for Research and Graduate Education will work with the committee to coordinate their work, communicate with the Dean and administer the program.
The Provost’s Office has allocated $100,000 for the CREATE program. Funding is structured in three tiers for artistic production and presentation and is available only to tenure-track and clinical CLA Faculty.
- Tier 1 provides up to $2,500 toward the production of art including acquisition of materials, production and presentation costs, including travel for modest creative projects. Funds for travel should be directly related to the creative process, not for simple conference attendance.
- Tier 2 provides up to $10,000 for the projects requiring more significant resources in the completion and/or presentation of a work. Funds for travel should be directly related to the creative process.
- Tier 3 provides $10,000-$25,000 for significant projects that require major acquisition of materials, equipment, or other production or presentation costs. Funds for travel should be directly related to the creative process.
The shared objective of the Provost and Dean Reingold is to inspire creative individuals to produce and present artistic work at the very highest levels.
There will be one application submission/review process each semester beginning in Fall 2017. Deadlines and full submission details will be available in early September.
