Creative Matches

The Office of Research & Economic Development is now accepting proposals to Creative Matches funding program, which supports collaborative projects that bring together scientific and artistic modes of inquiry, experimentation, and expression.

Results of the collaborations may take many forms, using as a point of departure scientific methodologies or findings, on the one hand, or art making and the creative process on the other. These collaborations should lead to engagement with the broader public.

Proposed projects must include partners from at least one arts discipline and at least one science, biomedical, or engineering discipline.

With funding from the Arts Advancement Committee, the Provost Office, and the Office of Research and Economic Development, the program will provide support for three to five projects of between $1,000 and $20,000 each.

The deadline for proposals is 11:59 p.m. on Sunday, April 15. Visit our website for additional information about eligibility and application guidelines.


The Office of the Vice President for Research and Economic Development provides resources and support to researchers and scholars at the University of Iowa and to businesses across Iowa with the goal of forging new frontiers of discovery and innovation and promoting a culture of creativity that benefits the campus, the state, and the world.
