The King Creativity Fund, annually supports “innovative and visionary projects” of enrolled students, supporting multiple projects every academic year with grant awards ranging from a few hundred to a few thousand dollars.
Creative projects may be carried out on- or off-campus. Previously funded projects may provide some guidance into the range of possible topics, but the purpose of this fund is to encourage students to be creative and to think outside of the box.
Grants are awarded by a committee composed of students, interested faculty, and an administrative advisor. Student members are selected from among those students previously awarded a King Creativity Fund grant.
Committee members base awards on creative merit, the soundness of the proposal, feasibility, potential for educational enhancement, qualifications of the student project directors, and budget projections.
