The Research in the Arts grant program was developed in order to foster original research on the value and impact of the arts. In the pilot year of the program, the CAC will award 4-8 project grants of up to $50,000 to California-based scholars and research teams. At the end of the grant period, grantees will produce at least one article-length research paper ready for publication.
The Research in the Arts program runs on a two-year grant cycle. The next application will open in the Fall of 2018.
