MOBILIZE! MINI-GRANTS FOR STUDENTS

Overview

America is at a crossroads. A global pandemic, uprisings against systemic racism, and widening inequality throughout society have set the stage for national elections with extraordinarily high stakes.

Arts in Action’s Mobilize! program offers awards of up to $500 for students looking to channel their creativity into activism, from making protest art to facilitating workshops. How will you use the arts as a force for social change?

How to Apply

To apply, read our guidelines containing full details. Mobilize! is open to all USC students and applications will be accepted for the duration of the 2020-21 academic year. Proposals are reviewed on or close to the 15th of each month. Current deadline: December 15th, 2020.
