The School of the Arts
A vital part of both the vibrant New York arts world and a great university, home to outstanding faculty and a community of artists from more than 30 countries, the School of the Arts is among the finest graduate art schools in the world. The Columbia Campaign will enable the School to continue to attract the very best students and faculty, energize creativity and collaboration in film, theater, writing, and visual art, and allow us to take our artists’ work to ever larger audiences, whether in New York or at the Sundance Film Festival, Edinburgh Festival, or the Venice Biennale.
Name a term fellowship in the arts, support the Annual Fund, or donate to the Dean’s Discretionary Fund to help a student thrive with less of a financial burden. Your contribution will provide immediate support for the School's most pressing need.
Consider honoring a friend or memorializing a loved one with this gift. This opportunity is available for endowment or for current-use and goes directly to our exceptional students.
MFA Thesis Programming
Increase the visibility and educational opportunities for students within the School of the Arts. Provide support for student seminars, establish a high-profile series of events celebrating MFA writers, help organize collaborative projects in theatre, or contribute to the highly acclaimed visual arts thesis exhibition.
Your support will help highlight the work of our School of the Arts students through various programming that is often the launch of their professional careers.
These funds help an advanced graduate student focus on the creative side of developing a thesis film, visual arts project, theatrical performance, or book for publication without the burden of securing financial support. This funding is crucial in launching a professional career.
The costs of completing a film or securing a work space for an artist are rising. You can contribute to the extraordinary work of the next great director, author, actor, or artist in the field.
This annual event premieres works created by graduate MFA students and is regarded by the film industry as a signature occasion to highlight the best of the up-and-coming filmmakers of today. Their films often go on to achieve great success at film festivals around the world.
This funding opportunity is open to corporate sponsors, foundations, and individual contributions. Your support can be allocated toward student awards, finishing funds, or general festival activities.
Establish an endowment to help support essential financial aid, finishing funds, professorships, travel funds, and many other opportunities that allow us to train tomorrow’s creative leaders in Film, Theatre, Visual Arts and Writing.
