Starting fall 2018, CU will no longer collect program or course fees from students but we will continue to support guest artist residencies. This fund is designed to bring in guest artists/scholars for teaching in theatre & dance courses, hosting workshops and other program-related events, projects or classroom supplies. Please submit your application by the deadlines - September 5, October 30, January 23 and April 5. The April 5 deadline is for projects that require funding during fall 2019 semester and any requests for residencies during the AY 2019-20 over 5K. Submit your Final Reporting form as soon as possible after your event.
Applicants must be a theatre or dance faculty member or a student enrolled in a THTR or DNCE course. Student applications must have a supervising faculty member approve the application.

ACE Performance Enhancement Fund
The ACE Performance Enhancement Fund is "an account provided by the Arts and Culture (ACE) portion of student fees for the purpose of funding guest artists (musicians, composers, fight choreographers, dialect coaches, designers, painters, puppeteers, milliners, etc.) who will work directly with students involved in a THDN production." ACE grants will only be awarded to projects seeking funding for a production on the theatre or dance season.
The ACE committee is made up of faculty, graduate, and undergraduate students and meets approximately four times per year. Read the application carefully as important details, dates and deadlines must be adhered to.
