I missed the deadline. Are late proposals accepted?
No. Late applications are only accepted in the case of technical issues with SlideRoom. To avoid these issues occurring at the last minute, it is recommended that applicants submit well in advance of the deadline.
Can I apply to support my academic work, i.e. work that fulfills course or degree requirements?
While the review committee will consider proposals related to academic work, we ask that students first seek support from their program or department. Proposals for academic work that show no evidence of departmental or program backing are unlikely to be awarded a Student Creativity Grant.
Can I apply for the Student Creativity Grants and Student Fine Arts Fund at the same time?
Applicants will only be considered for one arts grant at a time. If you apply to two or more programs at once, you will not be able to choose which review committee considers your proposal.
Are Student Creativity Grants taxed?
Like similar prizes and awards, Student Creativity Grants are reportable as taxable income for the recipient. As required by law, the University of Chicago will report the amount of the prize to the recipient and the IRS on the appropriate tax form. For non-resident international students only, the University will withhold the amount of income tax required by law. No withholding is required for U.S. citizens and permanent residents, but you may still owe taxes on the award amount at the end of the year.
