Robert Dance '77

The Robert Dance ’77 Initiative Fund

The Robert Dance ’77 Fund enables talented Dartmouth undergraduates to undertake special projects in the arts. Preference is given to performing or visual arts projects that are “site-specific works,” created for venues on campus other than traditional galleries, theaters or auditoriums. Outdoor venues, residential spaces and dining halls are among the sites that might be appropriate. The fund provides a total of up to $4,500 to support student-initiated projects. Undergraduate students and organizations are eligible to apply.

The Lazarus Family Musical Theater Fund

The Lazarus Family Musical Theater Fund supports student-initiated projects in musical theater to be presented on campus, with a priority given to original work. Although projects need not be curricular to be considered, senior projects that bring together work in drama and music are particularly appropriate. In the absence of proposals featuring original music, lyrics and/or text by students, productions that are to be directed, choreographed and designed by students can also be considered. The fund provides a total of up to $2,000 to support student-initiated projects.

Class of 1961

The Class of 1961 Arts Initiative Fund

Undergraduates are invited to apply for support of student enterprises in the arts. This award is funded by members of the Class of 1961 in order to enable talented Dartmouth undergraduates to undertake special projects in the arts. Particular interest will be given to those projects that “stand alone”—that is, projects that are not undertaken as senior fellowships or honors projects, or are affiliated with student organizations. The fund makes up to $1,500 available to sponsor student-initiated projects in the performing and visual arts. Application is open to single or group projects.
