2018 Grant Awards

Each year for the Leonard Bernstein Festival of the Creative Arts, students, faculty and alumni of Brandeis respond to a community-wide call to artists engaged in visual arts, music and theater. Grants are awarded from the Office of the Arts to produce innovative new work that offers opportunities to create, participate, and learn about the arts. A jury of faculty, staff and students evaluates grant applications on the quality and innovation of the project, and the potential for broad involvement of the Brandeis community during the festival.
