The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, the Graduate College, and International Programs are sponsoring a Grant and Fellowship Writing Seminar for PhD, MFA, and DMA students in the humanities, arts, and the social sciences May 13-24, 2024. PhD students in the natural and mathematical sciences who are pursuing the Fulbright or grants for humanistic research also are invited to apply.

The seminar will meet for two hours most afternoons, and participants can expect to spend time outside the seminar working on grant materials. The seminar will be led jointly by two members of the CLAS graduate faculty in the humanities, arts, and social sciences who have been active in coaching external grant applications of graduate students. Participants will be selected through an application process administered by the CLAS Dean’s Office and will receive a participant stipend of $250 from the Graduate College upon completion of the seminar. Candidates must have identified a national or international grant or fellowship for which they intend to apply in the upcoming cycle of summer and fall 2024 and must commit to participating in the Graduate College Fellowship Initiative in preparing their grant for final submission. In addition, the faculty advisor of each participant must be available via electronic communication during the seminar period to read and comment on a draft of their advisee’s proposal.

The submission deadline for Spring 2024 has passed and applications are no longer being accepted. Inquiries can be sent to Catherine Moore with the subject line: Grant and Fellowship Writing Seminar 2024.
