Faculty Grant and Research Proposal Pathway

Research in the College of Fine Arts is wide-ranging and innovative. It happens in the classroom, in the field, in archives and in studios that serve as laboratories for discovery

These discoveries span in-house projects restoring performing and visual arts and textiles and preserving indigenous skills to weeks-long field research focusing on water, ecology and human impacts on the land.

The College of Fine Arts Office of Research supports the Research needs of new and established faculty through
• Funding searches for research and performance projects
• Assistance with College and University policies and requirements
• Assistance with developing collaborations within and outside the College of Fine Arts
• Facilitation with library and other resources
• Aid in concept development and proposal review
• Publication of research news that highlights College of Fine Arts activities

Please see the Proposal Development timeline document and CFA Grants Handbook for more detailed information.

It is important that you use the FIRST alert help ticket to request help in funding searches, proposal development and submission of required Cayuse records. This request (formerly the Early Alert) will be directed back to the College of Fine Arts Office of Research.
