FAF GrantsCollege of Fine Arts FAF Grants financially supports student-driven extracurricular experiences.  You may review our pdfFAF Grants spending report from 2014-2020.  

FAF Grants funding is available to CFA student groups that are registered as a Sponsored Student Organization through Student Leadership & Involvement. (ASUU does not fund sponsored College of Fine Arts student organizations.) CFA Sponsored Student Organizations may apply for FAF Grants to fund student-driven, noncredit projects that 1) enhance student learning, and/or 2) enhance the student experience for the larger University community, and/or 3) create or host arts events on campus or in the greater Salt Lake Area.  FAF Grants projects must originate in the College of Fine Arts, be advised by a College of Fine Arts faculty member, and may involve students from other colleges.
