Promoting the rigorous curiosity and cross-cultural experimentation of the UChicago student is one of the core missions of the Arts, Science + Culture Initiative. Programs such as the Graduate Collaboration Grants, the Graduate Fellows, and Field Trip / Field Notes / Field Guide support and orchestrate exchanges between students in fields as diverse as art history and evolutionary biology, music and neuroscience, anthropology and the visual arts. In addition to the financial support awarded to graduate grantees and fellows, the Initiative provides staff support, monthly dinner forums, and exhibition, publication and presentation opportunities for the graduates’ collaborative projects and independent research.
