The Office of the Vice President for Research is pleased to offer a Fellowship and Grant Proposal Writing in the Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences Workshop on Friday, September 15, 2017, 1 to 2:30 p.m. in 5057 Woodward (corner of Woodward and Putnam), 3rd floor, conference room 3104.7.

Wayne State University faculty and senior graduate students in the Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences are welcome to attend this free session.

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. It is required to read draft proposals in advance of the workshop to allow for a substantial discussion. Not everyone needs to submit a draft proposal to attend the workshop; however, we need at least a handful of draft proposals to have content for the workshop.

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 current WSU graduate students and is FREE. Registration is required by September 11. 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 by September 11.
