The Frank-Ratchye Fund for Art @ the Frontier
The STUDIO administers the Frank-Ratchye Fund for Art @ the Frontier (FRFAF): an endowment to encourage the creation of innovative artworks by the faculty, students and staff of Carnegie Mellon University. With this fund, the STUDIO seeks to develop a cache of groundbreaking projects created at CMU — works that can be described as “thinking at the edges” of the intersection of disciplines. The Frank-Ratchye Fund supports at least three projects per year, which are selected by a committee twice annually. Any faculty, student or staffperson actively affiliated with Carnegie Mellon is eligible to apply, regardless of their home department.
Applications for Fall 2014 FRFAF grants (over $500) are due 11:59pm on Wednesday, October 1st. Applications for Microgrants (for amounts under $500) are accepted on a rolling basis.
