HIS 5400 - Grant Writing (3)


When Offered: Fall.Even-numbered years
This is a course tailored for advanced humanities and social science students who would find grant development skills useful for their careers–as well as to enhance their C.V.s. The course introduces various categories of external funding (e.g., grants, fellowships, contracts) and funders (e.g., public, nonprofit, private) and the advantages and disadvantages of these categories of funding. It introduces search strategies and the option of combining several funding sources to support projects. It deals with communication with program officers, emphasizes writing to program guidelines and for reviewers, and introduces the basics of budget development. The main assessed work for the course is a grant proposal, written to mock or real guidelines, requesting support for a research, programming, or service project.
