Established in honor of the Fujita family, this grant enables a talented Davidson artist to pursue a high-quality, independent art project (visual art, music, dance or drama) outside of the United States.
One grant of up to $7,000 is awarded annually by the Dean Rusk Program. Projects that do not receive Fujita funding will be considered for general Dean Rusk grant support.
The grant is for independent projects and individual proposals, and can fund lessons or workshops abroad.
Study abroad programs and group trips are not eligible for this grant.
The project must involve at least seven weeks outside of the U.S.
Start planning your proposal early.
Your proposal should include details about how this project will help you develop as an artist.
Talk to advisers and establish promising contacts abroad such as artists, organizations, scholars, or institutions.
Include a budget that accurately presents the project's costs.
Apply during the spring Dean Rusk Program grant cycle (mid-February deadline).
