Two projects led by the College of the Arts received awards totaling just over $1 million in the latest round of strategic funding projects from the University of Florida President’s Office.
The first project is an Arts Impact Engine, which is a research team-building initiative designed to help faculty and students write competitive proposals for external funding opportunities, advancing UF’s fast-growing and highly grant-funded arts program. The project received $1,005,790 over four years.
“The College of the Arts is expanding tremendously, and the Arts Impact Engine will only fuel that growth,” UF President Ben Sasse said. “This initiative will undoubtedly lead to more opportunities to fund and showcase our amazing arts program at UF.”
