LCA Extraordinary Ideas Grants

The Extraordinary Ideas Grants support innovative and creative cross-disciplinary research and activities that result from collaboration across programs, departments and colleges.

The Professional Development Committee especially encourages proposals that focus on promoting social/racial justice.

Proposals are considered for up to $2,000


These grants are open to all College of Liberal & Creative Arts faculty and staff. Each grant proposal must have at least two sponsors. Each of the two sponsors must be from different disciplines/programs/departments in LCA. Collaboration can extend beyond the college with colleagues in other colleges so long as the two co-sponsors are from LCA.

Applications are reviewed by the LCA’s Professional Development Committee.
