Explore Your Funding Potential

A workshop for faculty in the Fine Arts & Humanities

This grant workshop focuses on finding grants to support scholarly research or arts-related projects in the Fine Arts and Humanities. The day’s workshops are designed for faculty who have submitted a small number of grants (or even no grants at all), as well as faculty who want to improve their success rates when they apply for funding.

Join us for an afternoon of learning about:

  • local foundations and funding opportunities
  • finding a good funding fit
  • framing your project to increase its chances of getting funded
  • writing winning grants proposals

We’ll start with lunch and end with happy hour — hopefully outdoors in the June sunshine.
