Location: Humanities Institute: Clemens 218
Register by August 29 
Drafts Due: August 30, 2023

On Friday September 1, the Humanities Institute will host our faculty grant writing workshop in support of applications to external humanities based grants and fellowships.  HI's Grant Writing Workshop is specifically designed to help faculty improve grant and fellowship applications to organizations outside of UB by exchanging drafts and ideas with other grant seekers, in addition to learning grant writing strategies from our guest presenter, Erik R. Seeman, Professor of History.

Workshop participants are welcome to circulate draft proposals at any stage, from preliminary sketches to finalized applications. Drafts will be requested a few days before the event so workshop participants can take time to read and prepare peer advice. After the presentations and a brief Q&A session, lunch will be served. Subsequently, we will move on to the workshop portion of the event. **Faculty are welcome to attend only the presentation portion of the event.

**Presentation: 11-12pm

**Lunch and Workshop: 12-2pm.


The Humanities Institute schedules the workshop at the outset of the semester so that participants will have time afterward to integrate workshop feedback prior to the September and early Fall deadlines for a number of prestigious humanities based grants and fellowships, such as Radcliffe Fellowship applications (due Sept 14), Princeton's Hodder Fellowship (Sep 12), the ACLS Fellowship (Sept 28), the Stanford Humanities Center Fellowship (Oct. 1), the AAUW American Fellowship (Nov 1), and the Guggenheim Fellowship (mid-December), and among others.

**PLEASE NOTE: It is recommended that faculty coordinate with UB’s Sponsored Projects Services at least 2 weeks before submitting applications. Your proposal does NOT need to be finished at that time. However, your administrative file via the Click portal must be set up in advance of your application submission. Contact your SPS representative to begin the process as many more humanities grants are now part of the Click submission process.
