MOBILIZE! MINI-GRANTS FOR STUDENTS

Overview

America is at a crossroads. A global pandemic, uprisings against systemic racism, and widening inequality throughout society have combined to produce a national social and political climate that demands a renewal of hope, creativity and collective action. 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

Mobilize! awards will recommence in fall 2021. Proposals are reviewed on a monthly basis. In the meantime, you can read our guidelines containing full details. Mobilize! is open to all USC students.
