Humanities Grant Development Workshop Series
The Hall Center for the Humanities Grant Development Office continues to expand learning opportunities for both faculty and graduate students looking to enhance their skills; advance their research, scholarship, and creative activities; and improve their grant application competitiveness. In the spring semester we will take a deeper dive into topics from the introductory workshops offered in the fall. Registration is required, click the links below to sign up.
Clear, Concise, Compelling: Communicating Effectively in Funding Applications and Beyond
The default writing style of academia is ill suited to funding proposals. In order to succeed, scholars must diversify their skill set and adapt to this very different genre. In this workshop we'll compare academic writing to proposal writing and discuss some common pitfalls and ways to avoid them. Activities will include interactive practice of techniques useful to any scholar looking to communicate more effectively to broader audiences

What happens after you click submit?
The decision to fund or not fund a proposal typically lies in the hands of a review panel, but just who are these reviewers and how can you convince them to fund your application? In this workshop participants will hear from reviewers and participate in a mock review process while learning how to apply insight from these experiences to their next application.
