Creative and Performing Arts Award (CPAA)

The Graduate School's Creative and Performing Arts Awards (CAPAA) are offered to assistant, associate, or full professors. Applications are invited from faculty working in art, architecture, creative writing, theater, television, radio, dance, music, film, photography, and similar fields. Faculty awarded a Semester CAPAA will be released from teaching duties during the semester for which the award is granted. Faculty awarded a Summer CAPAA will receive a stipend of $9,000 for two months during the summer for which the award is granted. Awards are made with the understanding that the holder will relinquish the CAPAA if external support is received for the same project for the same period. Award recipients are strongly encouraged to involve a graduate student or students in the funded project in a mentoring relationship and to present methods and results of the funded project, during or immediately following the period of the award, in a forum or fora directed specifically to graduate students (e.g., a lecture, reading, colloquium, workshop, etc).
