Procedures for Applying for Funds

The Friends of Drake Arts offer grants of up to $500 per student per school year to create opportunities for fine arts students to expand their Drake experience by positively impacting their ability to collaborate with all areas of the university, connect with partners in the Greater Des Moines community, and travel to capitalize on unique experiences to enhance their fine arts education. Students and faculty are both eligible to apply for funds, but all applications must demonstrate student involvement in the planning process.
