The College of the Arts at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette is pleased to announce a new cycle of the ArTech and Collaborative Grants Program. This faculty grant program is intended to support research and creative activity through collaboration and/or investigations into the overlap of technologies and the arts.

UL Lafayette College of the Arts invites faculty members in the three schools/departments to apply for Artech and Collaborative Grants.

Proposed projects must culminate in a public product (ex. exhibition or lecture) or a performance by the grant deadline. Grantees are required to present their creative research and project outcomes during the Annual Festival of the Arts or during ArTech Fusion.

Based on the ideas of ‘STEM to STEAM’ ( we recognize the transformative innovation potential when Art and Design are integrated with Science, Technology, Engineering and Math.
