The Office of Sponsored Projects and the Center for Faculty Development are sponsoring a Pilot Faculty Grant Writing Circle for faculty in the humanities and social sciences in winter quarter 2023. Faculty from all ranks and all career stages within these fields in the College of Arts & Sciences interested in preparing a grant proposal are encouraged to apply!
This pilot will be limited to four faculty, representing a diverse mixture of disciplines in order to provide constructive feedback. Members will meet weekly for 6 weeks over winter quarter 2023 to review each other’s grant proposals, hone their writing for an audience of grant reviewers, and prepare to apply for external funding. This Pilot will be modeled after the Center for Faculty Development’s Faculty Writing Groups, but tailored for the unique artistry of grant writing.
Upon successful completion of the program, participants will be eligible to receive up to $500 in AY22-23 professional development support.
The application window is now closed. Thank you for your interest.
Questions can be sent to Sarah Bricknell.
The goal of this pilot program is to provide a peer community of accountability and support through the unique artistry of grant writing. The format is modeled after the Faculty Writing Groups hosted by the Center for Faculty Development, providing "structure and support to make steady progress toward your individual research and scholarship goals" - in this case, the preparation of a grant or fellowship proposal to be submitted to an external sponsor within the next 12 months.
This pilot is limited to 4 participants within the disciplines of social sciences or humanities. Participants will be selected to ensure a broad range of disciplines, career stages, and grant writing experience.
Please note: This pilot program is limited to faculty within the College of Arts and Sciences. We hope to expand this program in the future.
