The France-Merrick Fellowship
The highest level of achievement within the CAP Internship Program is that of a CAP France-Merrick Fellow. Committed, veteran CAP Interns who are awarded this fellowship for exemplary CAP service with community receive a $4,000 honorarium. This award is made possible through the France Merrick Foundation in the belief that community service should be an essential part of collegiate life. Fellowship applications are accepted each spring.
CAP Special Projects Grant
Three times a year, CAP, in conjunction with the Student Affairs Division and the Office of Community Engagement, accepts applications for independent, student-driven community arts projects. Past or present CAP Interns are encouraged to apply. Please see www.mica.edu/communitygrants for more information.
In addition to CAP Internships, MICA students may participate in a range of other community-related courses and extracurricular projects.
Such opportunities include:
• A class for community-based mural projects
• Finding Baltimore, a course focused on physically exploring Baltimore
• A class offered on public art and art intervention
• The multi-semester Exhibition Development Seminar which provides students with hands-on experience mounting a major exhibition linking specially designed cultural programs with underserved communities.
• An undergraduate concentration in Sustainability
• Graduate degrees in community arts (MACA and MFACA)
• A graduate degree in Social Design
