This just in from the College of William & Mary:
I’m writing to invite your institution’s faculty, researchers, and program staff to an exciting opportunity to hone their proposal and grant-writing skills. On Tuesday afternoon, March 25th two representatives from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) will be conducting a grant-writing workshop at the College of William & Mary. This free event, which is co-sponsored by William & Mary’s Dean of the Faculty of Arts & Sciences and the Omohundro Institute of Early American History and Culture, seeks to both raise awareness of funding opportunities at NEH and to increase the number and quality of applications submitted for funding.
The workshop will consist of an introduction to NEH programs and initiatives, followed by a mock peer review panel addressing specific strategies for writing competitive applications and providing insight into the review process. The session will run from 1:00pm – 5:00pm at William & Mary’s Blow Memorial Hall, Room 201 at 399 James Blair Drive in Williamsburg. Refreshments will be provided.
The NEH has encouraged us to invite faculty, researchers, and program staff at other colleges, universities, museums, and educational organizations for this workshop. This is truly a wonderful opportunity for you to seek more information about funding opportunities, and we hope you will participate. Please feel free to share this invitation with colleagues at your institution as well as colleagues at other area institutions.
If you plan to attend, please respond by Friday, March 21, to Carrie Letourneau at firstname.lastname@example.org or (757) 221-1050 and please include the following information:
