NEH Funding Opportunities Workshop

On Thursday, Feb. 9, the HWS Grants Office will host a National Endowment for the Humanities workshop on funding opportunities — from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. in the Comstock Dining Room. All interested faculty are encouraged to attend; the registration deadline has been extended to Tuesday, Feb. 7.

The workshop will be run by Dr. Fred Winter, senior program officer for the NEH's Office of Challenge Grants. He has worked at NEH on its Higher Education in the Humanities Program and its Teaching with Technology initiatives, and he has served as coordinator for NEH's special funding programs for presidentially-designated minority-serving institutions.

That day's workshop will include an Overview Session of NEH Funding Programs, a description of Special NEH Initiatives, tips on How to Write a Successful NEH Grant Application. There will be a Mock NEH Review Panel Session and an Analysis of Successful NEH Grant Applications.

Registration is requested so that there will be enough space; lunch will be provided, compliments of the Provost's Office.
