Semans Art Fund
The Semans Art Fund is a private foundation that funds opportunities for current UNCSA students to apply for grants for summer study, special projects, research, and performances, building upon the resources of UNCSA in imaginative ways and for UNCSA arts deans to apply for special projects that aid and promote the students and faculty of their school. To the greatest extent possible, projects should be designed to benefit the campus community and audiences of the School. The fund was established in 1977 by Dr. and Mrs. James H. Semans. Guidelines and an application form are attached and also may be obtained in each of the arts deans offices.. This grant-awarding cycle will support projects for summer 2013 and academic year 2013-2014. Student applications must be submitted through their appropriate art dean, not directly to The Semans Art Fund. Deadlines: Friday, February 11, 2013 – Student Applications due in Arts Deans’ Offices.
