About this Event

Appalachian State University, UNC Asheville, and Western Carolina University will co-host a one-day NEH Grant Application Writing Workshop presented by Dr. Geoff Burrows, Senior Program Officer in the Division of Research Programs at the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH). This invitation is open to any faculty or staff pursuing funding opportunities in the humanities.

Sessions will include a general overview of NEH programs and special initiatives, as well as specific strategies for writing competitive applications and a look at the review process (including a mock peer review panel with faculty members from the host institutions). There will also be plenty of time for questions and answers.
