Faculty Enrichment Grants

Enrichment Grants offer UNCSA faculty an opportunity to augment student learning by subsidizing ticket and transportation costs to attend local and regional off-campus performances, exhibits and screenings. 

In order for costs to be covered in advance, faculty members must submit this request to the Kenan Institute for the Arts at least two weeks prior to the event.  If you request funding for an event less than two weeks in advance, you will be responsible for purchasing tickets and transportation, and we will reimburse you within 2-3 weeks. Funding may not be used for overnight travel.

Frequently Asked Questions

When are applications accepted? 

Applications are accepted throughout the year, on a first come, first serve basis.

What expenses does the grant cover? 

The Institute will fund ticket or admission costs, as well as local or regional ground transportation. No lodging or meals will be covered.

What if my event is less than two weeks away? 

You may still apply for funding, but will have to pay for the cost of the event up front. If approved, you will be reimbursed within 2-3 weeks.

Can I arrange transportation through UNCSA and have them bill the Kenan Institute?

Yes, as long as the transportation cost is included in the total amount of the grant request.

If I go over budget, may I request more money?

No. The Institute suggests that you over-budget rather than run the risk of falling short. 

What if I do not use all of the funding?

The unspent funds must be returned to the Institute. If you do not spend the entirety of the award, please contact Candy Martinez.

How many times can I apply?

To ensure that as many faculty and students receive support, please limit your requests to one event per year.

Do you require a match for this grant? 

No matching funds are necessary.

Are there any funding restrictions? 

Funds are capped annually, and awarded on a first-come, first-served basis. 

When will I receive reimbursement? 

After completing the reimbursement process, payment should take 2-3 weeks.
