The AVPA supports practice-based research, and understands the development of performing and visual arts projects as epistemologies in their own right as well as aesthetic endeavors. Successful grant applications will demonstrate an ability to combine theory and practice and to use performance or visual arts as a research method. Grant proposals are expected to support the priorities of AVPA.
The AVPA now offers two competitive student grants:
The AVPA accepts applications on a continuous basis. The grant period is at the maximum of one year. Funding will not reimburse expenses that already occurred.
Notification of awards and grants will occur four weeks after the submission date.
Questions regarding each funding opportunity should be emailed to the Department: Academy for the Visual & Performing Arts
