Flash Grants

The College of the Arts provides Flash Grants for undergraduate student art, design, research and creative projects. The grant is open to students from any discipline in the College of the Arts, as long as the team is composed of students working in different disciplines, either in another school in the College of the Arts or another unit across campus. The team's project manager must be an undergraduate student on the Kent Campus who is currently enrolled in a major within the College of the Arts. Other team participants may be students from any school/department/college on the Kent Campus. A total of FIVE awards of up to $600 each will be granted to student teams for supplies.
