apply for funding

Garnering work experience across the undergraduate years can prove vital to setting up job opportunities for the future. We understand that most creative industry internships aren't paid work experience, and therefore recommend the F.M. Kirby Access & Opportunity Endowment Fund as an option for students seeking additional funding.

Click here to learn more about the Kirby Fund.

A variety of additional funding resources can be found on the WFU Humanities Institute page. Click here to explore these opportunities and find what’s right for you. We strongly recommend the ‘Undergraduate Student Stipends for Participation in International Conferences/Activities’ which allowed previous creative students to attend events such as documenta14 in Kassel, Germany and Art Basel in Switzerland.
