Creative Scholars Program

Mellon-Fronteridades Creative Scholars

The Mellon-Fronteridades Creative Scholars program seeks to expand interdisciplinary scholarship, service, and engagement with Arizona-Sonora border communities through the lens of the humanities, arts, and humanistic social sciences. This program offers a unique opportunity to amplify new voices in the border narrative and enrich public understanding of border life.

Three community-based artist/practitioner teams were awarded as Creative Scholars in 2019, with projects being completed in fall 2020.
