Lewis Center for the Arts awards over $105,000 for summer projects in the arts to 49 Princeton students

June 5th, 2020

The Lewis Center for the Arts at Princeton University announces more than $105,000 in awards to support the summer projects and research of 49 Princeton undergraduates, chosen from 90 applicants. Although all first, second, and third-year student-artists are eligible to apply, for many of the award recipients, the funding provides vital resources to conduct research, undertake training, and pursue other opportunities critical to achieving their senior thesis project goals in the arts.  The grants range from $300 to $7,500.

Students were applying for summer funding in March when the COVID-19 pandemic hit the U.S. Many proposals include traveling domestically or internationally and in-person learning with professional artists and through intensive group workshops. Students had to revise their proposals in response to restrictions imposed by the pandemic. In addition, grantees are being given an extended period to complete their funded work through the fall semester and during Wintersession in January.


In addition to funding, the Lewis Center has also established paid internships and research assistant positions for Princeton students for this summer to assist faculty and guest artists with a number of projects and initiatives.
