Area Endowment Funds

The department is the beneficiary of endowment funds set aside by generous donors. Periodically, there are enough funds that can be utilized to enhance and sustain student scholarships and mentoring; faculty research, creative work, and/or professional development; and guest artists and professional visits. When funds are available, they will be equally divided among the following 10 areas in the department: Animation, BFA Acting, Design & Tech, MDT, Media Arts Critical Studies, Media Arts Production, Nonfiction (Media Arts), Theatre Arts Studies, Theater Education, and Writing (Theater and Media). Use of these funds will be tied to each area’s strategic planning goals. Read the area endowment policy for more details and instructions.

Requests for Area Endowment Funds can be made by filling out a Yearly Area Endowment Proposal Form. Revisions to the proposals may be turned in any time during the year by using the Change Request Form.
