The Creative Constellation Grants are opportunities for current Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts students, both undergraduate and graduate students, to implement original and innovative ideas that use their creativity for powerful community impact. Creative Constellation grants fall into two categories: 1.) Polaris Grants for larger events, capstones, projects, and displays and 2.) Sirius Grants for bright, new ideas in need of an angel investor. Award recipients have access to mentorship, networking, financial planning assistance, and material resources needed to support their project. Please note: These grants are to expand and amplify your creative projects.
Applications are reviewed twice a year by the grant committee. Awardees will be contacted by email if they have been awarded a grant and then given guidelines for the next steps in the process. Funding will disburse at the beginning of the semester for which each grant is offered. Awardees will be required to document their creative process and project throughout the process as well as submit a final project reflection and account of all expenditures.
For spring session - November 1
For summer and fall sessions - April 1
