Creative Activity Grant

Up to $1500 Fall or Spring

Up to $3000 Summer

Creative activity grants are intended to help students spend a significant amount of time pursuing activity of an artistic and creative nature. These grants are for students who show significant potential in some creative field. Recent awards have helped support musicians, writers, painters, photographers, and sculptors. An applicant should be able to demonstrate a strong sense of his/her intentions and goals and must be highly recommended by two faculty members who know his/her work. (Faculty members who recommend more than one student for these grants will be expected to rank those he/she recommends.)

Applicants for these awards normally submit already completed work to help the committee make its decision. Recipients of these awards may be expected to share their work with other students during the following semester.

These awards are not intended to support work being done for classes.

To apply for a Creative Activity Grant obtain an application at here.

Please Note: All applicants must attach an unofficial IUB transcript to this application.

All applicants who are leaving Bloomington for their activities must also complete and attach either a domestic or foreign travel waiver to their application.

**NOTE**: If you filed the FAFSA and are receiving financial aid (for example: Direct Loans, Pell Promise grants, 21st Century Scholars Covenant), and you receive one of the Hutton Honors College's grants for scholarships, your award from the Hutton Honors College may not be paid-out in the form of cash funds (i.e., as money paid into your Bursar account), but instead, may be used by IU's Office of Student Financial Assistance (OSFA) to reduce your student/parent loan burden or reduce your federal/state grant by the amount awarded to you by the HHC. To learn how your HHC award may impact your financial aid, please contact OSFA at

Awards will be announced approximately six weeks after the deadline.

Don't forget to read the general eligibility requirements.
