Kleeman Fund Spring 2013




The Art Department is pleased to announce the availability of funds to support significant work in studio art and art history. Monies are available through The Richard Kleeman Research Fund, an endowed fund, created in 1992 in recognition of Professor Kleeman’s 39 years of dedicated teaching at Allegheny College.

All current Allegheny College students who are interested in applying for money from the Richard Kleeman Research Fund are required to submit a written proposal to the chairperson of the Art Department on the form designed for that purpose. Proposals should describe the nature and scope of the project and must include a budget reflecting how funds will be used. Funds will be awarded on a competitive basis to: (1) help defray the expenses of art-related travel and study, (2) help with the expenses of significant senior projects, and (3) help students meet studio or art historical research expenses for other ambitious work.

Further information and application forms may be obtained from department faculty or in the Art Department office. PROPOSALS ARE DUE BY NOON ON WEDNESDAY, January 30, 2013 FOR FUNDING DURING THE SPRING SEMESTER. Completed applications should be submitted to Rhonda Hershelman, Art Department Building Coordinator, Art Gallery, Doane Hall of Art. Funding requests should not exceed $300.00. Awards will be determined by the faculty of the Art Department. Award recipients will be notified by February 8, 2013.
