Upcoming event: Proposal development workshop for arts & humanities faculty


The OVPR invites Baylor faculty to a special grant-writing workshop specifically focused on research in the arts, humanities, social sciences and education.

The seminar, “Write Winning Grant Proposals,” is intended to help faculty of all levels compete more effectively for external research funding.  Faculty who plan to apply for research funding from the National Endowment for the Arts, National Endowment for the Humanities, U.S. Department of Education, private foundations and other funding sources are encouraged to attend.

Attendees will receive a printed workshop handout and a copy of the “Successful Proposals to Any Agency” workbook.  Attendance at the seminar is a pre-requisite for faculty interested in applying for any of the OVPR’s Grant Development Program services, including writing and editorial assistance from OVPR staff and the new Mentoring Award, a competitive program that provides selected faculty with one-on-one proposal development assistance from a professional grant writer.

The seminar is open to any Baylor faculty member, but seats are limited and priority will be given to new faculty members (those who joined our faculty in the past year) and to untenured faculty with tenure-track appointments.

Tuesday, April 14, 2015
8:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m.
Breakfast, lunch and afternoon snacks provided.
