Grant-Writing WorkshopThe next grant-writing workshop organized by the Office of the Vice Provost for Research, “Essentials in Writing Applications for NIH and NSF,” will be held on the Coral Gables campus on Friday, September 25 from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Part of a series organized in response to requests from faculty, the workshop follows another successful workshop held August 13, when 18 faculty from 12 departments and the Richter Library learned about “Funding for the Humanities” from a panel of faculty experts. Deborah Schwartz-Kates (musicology), Frank Palmeri (English), and Ashli White (history) discussed their experiences obtaining funding from the National Endowment for the Humanities. A video recording of that workshop is available upon request from Karin Scarpinato, assistant provost for research.

To sign up for “Essentials in Writing Applications for NIH and NSF,” RSVP by September 15. For more information about the series, visit UResearch’s Grant Writing Workshops.
