Co-Curricular Grant Application

The Kaplan Humanities Institute's Co-Curricular Artist Grants support curricular engagement with artists and their work, aiming for a stronger integration of the arts into undergraduate and graduate teaching at Northwestern. Co-curricular grants may help facilitate an artist's lecture or workshop in class; cover site visits to an artist's studio or event; or support other creative integrations of the arts in and beyond the classroom.

The Co-Curricular Grants are part of Kaplan's Artist Engagement Initiative which seeks to expand interdisciplinary engagement among artists, faculty, and students across all programs and departments at Northwestern.
