Got an idea that uses technology in a creative way? The DMC has money available for creative projects!
The Digital Media Center and Homewood Student Affairs offer an annual grant program for students who can demonstrate a new and creative use of technology.
You need not to be an artist to make creative use of technology. Through this grant we hope to inspire creative interactions between humans and technology. Projects may range from inception through development of new processes, tools, interfaces, and static and interactive works of art.
Any full-time student enrolled in the Schools of Art & Sciences or Engineering may apply for the grant.
Proposals should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. The application is due on November 12, 2012.
The application should contain:
- Title of Project
- Description of the project
- Resume of the applicant/s
- Anticipated barriers/challenges
- Project timeline w/ milestones
- Resources needed
- Itemized project budget
- Contact information
Note: We highly recommend contacting the Director of the Digital Media Center (410-516-4288) to discuss project idea before submitting a grant proposal.
A committee made up of Digital Media Center professional and student staff will review all of the proposals. Proposals will be judged using the following criteria:
- Creativity and originality of the idea – 35%
