The Intermedia MFA department proudly supports student projects through a competitive grant cycle held each semester. Students may apply for up to $500 for project based works. For those who have never written a grant before this is a good introduction into the process of grant writing for two reasons. First, you are competing in a small pool of applicants. Secondly, the department has many students familiar with this particular grant and you are encouraged to learn from them first hand.
