The Artists’ Resource Center (ARC) helps School of the Arts students find outside scholarships, fellowships, and grants. The center also provides resources for career and professional development, including seminars, workshops, events with arts organizations, and alumni panels.
The ARC website includes an extensive and searchable guide to scholarships, grants, fellowships, artist residencies, and arts organizations. It also provides valuable information about career resources, grant writing, fiscal sponsorships, emergency resources, and other arts and artist resources. UNI and password, required for login to the ARC website, are assigned to admitted students after receipt of deposit.
The ARC publishes a monthly e-newsletter that lists and reminds students of upcoming deadlines for grant and scholarship opportunities.
Students can meet with ARC staff one-on-one for career counseling and guidance in finding scholarships and grants.
The ARC offers workshops and seminars throughout the year, such as:
- How to Research Scholarships, Grants, Fellowships and Project Funds
- Basic Grant Writing
- Resume Development for Arts-related, Academic and “Day” Job Searches
- Interviewing Skills
- Life Skills 101: Medical Insurance, Rental Insurance, and Legal Services
The ARC hosts several events for School of the Arts students, including media networking nights, and panels with alumni who work in the arts and arts-related fields.
