CWPS Funding Resources

General Student and Faculty Requests

CWPS is no longer accepting funding requests for the 2014-2015 academic year. We will begin accepting new requests in August 2015.

Each year CWPS funds a variety of faculty and student projects such as events, conferences, collaborations, research and scholar/artist residencies. Scholar and artist residency programs may be used to bring a colleague from a foreign country to participate in a class, conference, or ongoing workshop; initiate a thematic or geographic workshop series that draws on faculty and/or engages students; or travel abroad to design a research partnership with scholars and students from a particular institution. All requests are considered if they support world performance and expressive art projects that broaden the thematic focus of emerging World Performance Studies. Applications are reviewed on a rolling basis and may be awarded up to $2,000.

Faculty Summer Funding

Each year, CWPS provides funding to U-M faculty who are involved with research or performance-based projects by traveling to various sites, domestically and internationally. We encourage inventive ideas, especially those that involve thematic support for World Performance Studies. Awards are given up to $2,000 and must be used between May and August.

Application Deadline: The deadline has passed for summer 2015. Please return in January 2016 for summer 2016 funding support.
