Regional NEH Grant Writing Workshop

September 25 @ 8:30 am - 12:30 pm

On Friday, Sept. 25, the University of Maine’s McGillicuddy Humanities Center and Mark Silver, Senior Program Officer in the Research Division of the National Endowment for the Humanities, will conduct a workshop on applying for NEH grants. The workshop is open to the public. Anyone interested in learning about NEH funding opportunities and application strategies is invited to attend, including those from other universities and cultural institutions in the region.

Although the event is free, registration in advance is required.

The workshop will run from 8:30 a.m.–12:30 p.m. The event will be held on campus and/or remotely, as conditions permit.

During the first half of the workshop, Dr. Silver will provide an overview of a variety of NEH funding opportunities and offer guidance for writing competitive proposals. In the second half of the workshop, he will run a mock application review panel, where panelists will discuss and rank sample proposals using NEH guidelines to provide insight into how applications are evaluated and recommended for NEH funding.

Dr. Silver will also be available during the afternoons of Thursday, Sept. 24, and Friday, Sept. 25, to meet individually with prospective applicants to discuss their projects and offer advice about their proposals. Those interested in scheduling a twenty-minute appointment will be asked to submit a one-page single-spaced overview of their project in advance.

A registration portal for the event, including an appointment signup sheet, will open on July 15, available at umaine.edu/mhc. More details will be released in due course.
