Individual students, teams and registered student organizations may apply for up to $500 in funds for a project or event co-sponsorship. For a funding request to be considered, this form must be completed in full and accompanied by a budget detailing anticipated costs with all sources of support listed (pending and confirmed). All information must be returned at least six weeks prior to the event.

When reviewing grant submissions, we will prioritize the following:

  • Events and activities that take place on campus (or within walking distance), or projects in which students are engaged in outreach activities with communities beyond campus;
  • Projects and events of a collaborative nature;
  • Projects and performances that integrate an educational component, helping to provide context for or knowledge about diverse performance practices;
  • Projects and events that cultivate dialogue about performance practices, performance theory, and relevant topics in the field of Performance Studies, especially through the global perspective (ie. identity, liminality, text/narrative, ethnography, ritual, etc.)

We encourage innovation and originality in defining performance and encourage traditional and non-traditional projects and undertakings.

Note: CWPS funds cannot be used to pay student event organizers, or for door prizes/"give-aways."
