Brandeis Arts Engagement

BIPOC Creator Grants

Marginalized students often lack access to resources such as studio space, mentorship, subsidized private music lessons, exhibition opportunities, printing technology, and so forth. In June 2020, the Division of Creative Arts publicly stated its support of BIPOC students’ opportunities to engage with and learn from the arts. 

Arts Engagement BIPOC grants of up to $250 support Brandeis undergraduates in any course of study whose creative work amplifies the voices of BIPOC people. The one-time grant may be used for resources such as equipment, materials, studio time, lessons, workshops and so forth for creative arts disciplines such as (but not limited to) music, photography, curating, filmmaking, design, poetry, spoken word, etc. 

The grant may not be used for resources that are available for free at Brandeis, such as recording equipment, cameras, or music and video software. Please refer to the Sound and Image Media Studios website to see what you may use for free.

Although your creative work does not need to be exhibited, published or performed, we can help you do that.

The 2023-24 grant applications are now closed. Current students are invited to apply after July 1, 2024 for the 2024-25 grants.
