Research, Scholarship and Creative Work

CADC Seed Grants

The purpose of the CADC Seed Grant program is to provide funding to support faculty research, scholarship and creative work.

These funds serve to advance faculty work that has the potential to secure external funding or yield visibility to the faculty and college through resulting work, including publications, exhibitions, and fellowships. The 2021 cycle is expected to open in late Fall 2021.
