Grants

As part of ACUADS’ commitment to the art and design education sector, funding is currently available for initiatives of relevance and significance to our field.

Funding is intended for initiatives that are of national relevance for the sector. This includes journals, research tools, online databases, etc.
Funding is suited to ongoing initiatives that have experienced a gap in funding.
Cross-disciplinary and cross-institutional applications are encouraged.
To be eligible for an ACUADS Grant, the applicant(s) must be based at an ACUADS member institution, or hold individual ACUADS membership.
Funding is not intended for individuals or local events.
Up to five grants, of $1000-5000, may be awarded per year on a strictly one-off basis.
