About the Project

The MSU Graduate Community Arts Partner Project (G-CAPP) is recruiting graduate students for a year-long professional development program focused on community-engaged arts.

Through workshops, peer learning, and mentoring, participants will learn how to identify and collaborate with community partners to co-design and implement a community-engaged arts project, evaluate its impact, and develop engagement artifacts that help participants take their work beyond volunteering to community-engaged arts and creative activities, a valued contribution to scholarship and community engaged research.

This opportunity is designed for graduate students in good standing at Michigan State University in arts and humanities fields who wish to do creative and/or arts-based projects with different community groups. Priority will be given to MFA and PhD students, though master’s students with a particular passion for this work are encouraged to apply. 

How to Apply

Please submit the following materials to Julie Rojewski at rojewsj [@] msu.edu no later than Friday, September 17, 2021.

  • A current resume/CV including professional references (e.g., advisor)
  • A brief outline of the project you’d like to do (no more than one page)
  • If you currently have community partner with whom you do work, please include that information. Prior work in this area is not required; we can help identify community partners for participants who are selected on the basis of their project idea. 

This program is sponsored by The Graduate School and MSU’s Office of University Outreach and Engagement.
