The King Creativity Fund annually supports “innovative and visionary projects” of enrolled students, supporting multiple projects every academic year with grants ranging from a few hundred to a few thousand dollars.
Proposals are no longer being accepted for the 2017-18 year. Last year’s call for proposals, however, is available below and provides details about the process.
King Creativity Grants enable students to pursue projects that stretch disciplinary boundaries, envision bold new ideas, or combine traditional academic methods with new approaches.
In one sense, the term “creative” invokes the design and creation of something new: a new object or tool; a new process; a new communication strategy; a new performance or work of art; a new narrative, film, archive, or podcast; a new solution to a problem; or a new action.
But “creativity” also invokes the use of imagination, the willingness to tackle problems in unorthodox ways or to draw from more than one toolbox, a readiness to take risks, an openness to new perspectives, and an interest in innovation.
