RE: Creativity and Aging - National Endowment for the Arts (NEA)
The National Endowment for the Arts is inviting grant applications to support literature and music
projects conducted by professional artists that actively engage older Americans (age 65 and above) in
quality arts programs.
Grants are for $15,000 or $25,000. Approximately fifteen grants will be awarded. All grants require
a nonfederal match of at least 1 to 1.
UCI may submit no more than one proposal for this program. Interested applicants are asked to
submit a preliminary application to my office by April 30, 2008 (electronic submission to
email@example.com is preferred), with the following information:
Brief proposal (up to three pages),
Preliminary budget (indicating NEA required 1:1 matching funds),
Bio-sketch (no more than two pages) of the principle investigator
Support letter from the Dean (or the equivalent in units without a Dean).
If several preliminary internal applications are submitted by faculty members from any one School,
the Dean may be asked to rank them. If necessary, an ad hoc committee of the Council on Research,
Computing and Libraries (CORCL) will convene to review the internal applications. The committee
will notify the selected PI in time to meet the NEA deadline of May 23, 2008.
For the complete NEA guidelines, please refer to
http://www.nea.gov/grants/apply/CreativityAging.html . Questions about our internal campus
review process may be directed to Marie Richman at firstname.lastname@example.org or x4-2898.
