Humanities Grant-Writing Learning Community for Fall 2018
Have a research idea but need funding to make it a reality?
Interested in writing a grant, but don’t know where to start?
This semester the Office for Research Support (ORS) and the Center for Textual Studies and Digital Humanities (CTSDH) are once again co-sponsoring a faculty learning community on grant-writing for humanities projects. The learning community will meet four times throughout the Fall 2018 semester to learn how to:
- search for grant opportunities,
- develop fundable ideas for research projects,
- create budgets and administrative structures,
- write winning grant applications.
The meetings will take place at 12:30 pm on the following dates:
- September 7, 2018
- September 21, 2018
- October 5, 2018
- October 19, 2018
All meetings will take place in the Center for Textual Studies and Digital Humanities, Room 318, Loyola Hall. Lunch will be provided. In joining the learning community, faculty participants are making the commitment to selecting a grant, writing an application for it, and submitting it. Examples of agencies that support humanities projects include the National Endowment of the Humanities (NEH), the National Endowment of the Arts (NEA), the Illinois Humanities Council, and the American Council of Learned Societies (ACLS).
This learning community is particularly relevant to faculty in the Department of Fine and Performing Arts, the Humanities Departments, the University Libraries, the School of Communication, and scholars from all disciplines with an interest in transdisciplinary work involving the arts and humanities.
If you are interested or have any questions, please RSVP to Terri Pigott (email@example.com) and Kyle Roberts (firstname.lastname@example.org).
