Catron Grant for Artistic Development

These grants support the artistic growth of talented students in the creative and performing arts through off-campus educational experiences, either at a formal educational institution or through structured practical hands-on exposure, in the United States or abroad for a summer. We encourage Catron grant recipients to enhance their talents through academic or studio classes, structured hands-on experiences, or a combination of the two. Although the number of awards and funding amounts vary, the maximum awarded is $5,000. The application deadline for summer 2023 is Feb. 20, 2023 by 11:59 p.m.
