Grant and Fellowship Writing Seminar for PhD and MA/PhD students in the Humanities and the Social Sciences

The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, the Graduate College, and International Programs are sponsoring a pilot Grant and Fellowship Writing Seminar for PhD and MA/PhD students in the Humanities and the Social Sciences (including the PhD in Art History, Film Studies, and Music) from 14-25 May 2018. The seminar will meet each morning and be led jointly by 2 members of the CLAS Graduate Faculty in the Humanities 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 prestigious external grants and fellowships for which they intend to apply in the upcoming cycle of summer and fall 2018 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, either on campus or via electronic communication, during the seminar period to read and comment on drafts of their advisee’s proposals. Eligible students should complete the application form and return it to allison-bierman@uiowa.edu with the subject line: Grant and Fellowship Writing Seminar 2018. The deadline for applications is 31 March 2018.
