The National Science Foundation (NSF) has awarded CCA a $200,000 grant, one of largest awards made to an art college. The three-year grant will support CCA’s innovative Exploring Science in the Studio project.
CCA’s award is part of the NSF’s TUES (Transforming Undergraduate Education in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) program, which seeks to improve the quality of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education for all undergraduate students.
