Arts First Pedagogical Enhancement Fund application

Please note that the Arts First Pedagogical Enhancement Fund is not available for the current academic year. Instructors will be notified when applications open in the future.


The Arts First Program has a small budget intended to support special activities to enhance the learning experience of Arts First students. The funds may be used to take students on a field trip where they would gain hands-on experience relevant to the course, to welcome a guest speaker, or for some special supplies or equipment that may aid the delivery of the learning outcomes.

Arts First instructors are invited to apply for funding to a maximum of $500 per section by completing the form belowPlease submit a separate proposal for each section.

Please note that spending must follow university expense guidelines (i.e., for meals and mileage). Honoraria paid to guest speakers should be limited to a maximum of $250. Equipment purchased with UW funds belongs to the University and must be returned at the end of the term to the First-Year Program Coordinator (Taryn Stutz, in PAS 2452). If instructors need to use equipment in future terms, they can request to use the equipment again by contacting the coordinator.

Applications will be reviewed by Kathy Acheson, Associate Dean, Undergraduate Programs, in collaboration with the Arts First Director, Rob Danisch, and Associate Director, Angela Carter.

Please relate the rationale of your request to the learning outcomes of ARTS 130 or ARTS 140.
