Cultural Attractions Fund

Purpose: To allow Colorado College to offer a rich program of cultural and public attractions for the Colorado Springs community through public lectures, musical performances, drama, dance, film, opera, exhibits, etc.

The Cultural Attractions Fund seeks to engage CC students and the Colorado Springs community creating collegiality between the campus and community. Please include enough in your budget to broadly publicize your event on campus and within the greater Colorado Springs community.  The Cultural Attractions Fund provides grants for traditional and nontraditional activities that enhance Colorado Springs’ cultural richness, are community oriented, and are free to the public or offered at a modest price.  

Process: Colorado College students, faculty, and staff representing college departments or organizations may apply for event funding. A selection committee composed of faculty, staff, students, and a community member considers applications once a block. Proposals should be submitted by the end of the first week of the block. We strongly encourage you to submit requests of more than $4,000 a minimum of four months in advance of your event.

APPLICATION for FUNDING: Please submit this form by the first Friday of the block. Student requests will not be reviewed unless accompanied by a letter of support from a faculty or staff member. Supplementary statements of support from a Colorado Springs or regional community member or group are welcomed (contact Mary Frances Kerr in the president's office). The application and all supporting materials must be in electronic form. Requests for funding equipment, capital projects, instruments, sets, and similar items will not be considered.
