During the course of completing their degrees, students in VCUarts graduate programs invariably travel for professional opportunities —exhibiting their work, attending conferences, and presenting their research. To support their scholarly and creative endeavors, VCUarts offers competitively awarded travel grants. Among more than 50 student recipients in the past year, María Tinaut received a grant after she was invited to exhibit her work at Fifi Projects Gallery in Monterrey, Mexico. The exhibition, What Might Have Been Lost, was Tinaut’s first solo show. “I had shown my work before, but always in group shows . . . so it was amazing to have my first solo show of all time be international,” she said.
VCUarts also confers grants to graduate students in the final stages of their degrees, to cover costs for research and materials associated with MFA exhibitions, MA theses or qualifying papers, and PhD dissertations.
Deadline to apply for Fall 2017 admission to VCUarts highly ranked, graduate fine arts programs is January 15, 2017.
