The Visual Arts Department offers a number of grants for student artists to use towards their projects. The Russell Grant and the Class Project Grants are great resources available every year for young artists to realize their art works.
However, there are not many resources available to help students write and apply for grants. Triton Art held a grant-writing workshop open to all members of the UCSD art community, led by Visual Arts MFAs Trevor Amery and Michael Ano as well as PhD candidate Stephanie Sherman. These leaders provide invaluable resources concerning how to write successful grants and what the steps applying for funding entail. The workshop walks students through the process of starting, editing, and finalizing an artist statement, creating a CV or resume, planning a budget. These skill are applicable to all artists for the entirety of their careers even after their education.
