Newcomb Institute is seeking proposals for funding from the Dorothy Beckemeyer Skau Art and Music Fund. This fund supports programs in art and music, with a strong preference for projects that involve and engage undergraduate students and that connect with the Newcomb Institute’s mission of advancing gender equity.
Who May Apply: Faculty and staff in the art and music departments and the Newcomb Art Museum or other Tulane faculty who have a compelling art or music-based project.
Grant Awards: The grant program will make awards of up to $10,000 per project. We may choose to fund one large project or several small projects.
An application for 2024 will be available in Wavesync in the spring, with a due date of May 1, 2024. Funding will be available for projects in the 2024-25 academic year and will include:
- Project statement describing the purpose of the project and a timeline for project completion (2-3 pages)
- A statement describing undergraduate student involvement and connection to the Newcomb Institute mission (1-2 pages)
- Budget statement itemizing project expenses and requested funding
