The Office of the Vice President for Research is pleased to a Fellowship and Grant Proposal Writing in the Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences Workshop on Wednesday, September 10, 2014, 1-3 PM in 5057 Woodward (corner of Woodward and Putnam), 6th floor, Conference Room A.

During this session, we will be reviewing and providing feedback on participants’ draft proposals that will be provided to all participants in advance of the session. This is an invaluable way to improve your proposal before it goes to the external agency.

Successful grant and fellowship proposals will be circulated to participants prior to the workshop to allow for prepared observations and questions to be discussed during this session; however, the main emphasis of this session will be to workshop for participants’ draft proposals.

This workshop is led by Arthur F. Marotti, Distinguished Professor of English Emeritus at Wayne State University. Dr. Marotti is the recipient of research fellowships from The John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation (1975-76), The American Council of Learned Societies (1988-89), and The National Endowment for the Humanities (2000 and 2005-6). In addition, he has been co-Principal Investigator on two federal grants (2002-7, 2007-10) from the Department of Education to fund bilateral exchanges of students and faculty with Brazilian universities.

This workshop is open to WSU faculty and is FREE. Registration is required by September 5, 2014. Materials to be read for the workshop will be emailed to participants in advance. 

After registering, if you would like your grant proposal to be reviewed at this workshop, please send proposals to Sarah James at sjames@wayne.edu by September 5, 2014.
