Arts Integration Initiative

An initiative to support arts-centric research, incubate interdisciplinary projects and advance faculty-student mentorship

For the second year, Hopkins Center and the Vice Provost for Research invite applications for grants supporting arts-integrative research projects.

Projects must be interdisciplinary in nature, with an arts discipline at the core. For more information on arts-integrative work, download the Branches from the Same Tree Report from the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine. Other disciplines to be included in a particular project can be wide-ranging, from STEM fields to humanities and social sciences.

Arts Integration Initiative Summary

In alignment with a transformed and expanding Arts District, the Arts Integration Initiative creates formative arts experiences for all students, advances faculty/student mentorship and teaching, and supports interdisciplinary arts-centric research and project development.

After a successful pilot round of grants in 2022, we are offering a second round of Arts Integration Project Grants with direct support from the Office of the Provost.

Arts Integration Grant Program at a Glance

The Hopkins Center and the Office of the Vice Provost of Research will coordinate and administer the grants collaboratively.

$100,000 will be divided between faculty grants and student grants:

  • Faculty-led projects are eligible for grants of $10K-$20K
  • Student-led projects are eligible for grants of $5K-$10K
  • NEW $1K-$2K mini-grants are available for smaller student-led projects

Funds must be used during the 2022/23 academic year, with the possibility of extending through Summer 2023.

All Dartmouth-affiliated faculty and students are invited to apply. Proposals may be for individual or collaborative projects.

We are no longer accepting applications. Decisions will be returned by January 4th, 2023.

Arts at the Core

These trans-disciplinary projects demonstrate how the arts are naturally in dialogue with all areas of scholarship. The breadth of the projects underscores the many ways that artistic methodologies and practices open new lines of inquiry, reveal rich connections and broaden the impact of research in all disciplines.
