Grants from The Sachs Program for Arts Innovation support innovative arts activities throughout the Penn community, providing funding to Penn students, faculty, staff, departments, programs, and centers. There are currently two funding streams available to students:

  • Annual Grant Opportunities for Penn faculty, staff, student groups, departments, programs, and centers are now consolidated into four core categories (Curricular, Project Grants, Independent Production, and Artist Residencies). Applications for these annual grants will be due February 1, 2023. 
  • Student grants are now available once a year. Student grants will be due December 5 2022. 

Grants range in size, with most opportunities between $4,000 and $8,000. All grantmaking is aligned with the Sachs’ vision to support teaching art, making art, and presenting art, as well as their aim to provide Penn students with increased access to the arts and humanities. This year’s grant cycle provides multiple categories of arts funding that are open to the Penn community including faculty, staff, students, departments, programs, and centers
