Announcing Scholarships and Grants for Land Arts of the American West and Art & Ecology at the University of New Mexico

Land Arts of the American West (LAAW) is funded in part by grants from Lannan Foundation and Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. Lannan Foundation supports the LAAW annual field program and the Lannan Endowed Chair. Grants from Andrew W. Mellon Foundation fund the Land Arts Mobile Research Center (LAMRC) and the Center for Environmental Arts and Humanities (CEAH). In 2018, we will be offering a series of grants and scholarships to Indigenous undergraduates at UNM and undergraduate, graduate, and post-graduate alumni of LAAW. Funds will support: Indigenous undergraduate scholarships, international travel for research projects, and post-MFA research.

INDIGENOUS UNDERGRADUATE SCHOLARSHIPS
Center for Environmental Arts and Humanities is offering up to $6,000 in scholarship funding to support up to three Indigenous undergraduate students at the University of New Mexico. Students must be enrolled in Art & Ecology courses or Land Arts of the American West (LAAW) program at UNM during the 2018-2019 academic year. The scholarship can be used to defray the cost of attending the LAAW program and/or pursue creative work in the area of Art & Ecology. Please send a brief personal statement and letter of interest. Also tell us what courses you are planning to take. (Note if you are planning on attending Land Arts of the American West, please contact Jeanette Hart-Mann as soon as possible.)
