Student Creativity Grants

Student Creativity Grant

The Hive student creativity grant program supports projects by evoking and enabling creative growth within and between 5C students. This grant program supports students who need access to creative resources such as funding, materials, space, or mentoring for their important creative endeavors.

The Hive prioritizes proposals that develop a skill or fulfill a creative goal; and are collaborative, for projects and activities where resources are shared by team members.

Once creative projects are completed, teams are encouraged to share what they’ve created through written, visual, or physical artifacts, as well as conduct a workshop with the Hive to demonstrate to others their project’s process, highlights, and challenges.
