The Grant Writing Workshop program began in fall 2002 with a general, half-day workshop for Emory graduate students in the humanities and social sciences. During the 2003-2004 academic year, we expanded the program to include an intensive workshop for students with proposals in progress. The first Intensive Grant Writing Workshop was held in February 2003. These workshops are now annual events. In 2006-2007 the Graduate School Grant Writing Workshop program expanded significantly to include three new events: First Year Forums, The Beginning Grant Writing Workshop and the Proposal Writing Institute.

The half-day general student workshop held in the fall is designed for graduate students at all levels in the humanities and social sciences. It provides an overview and useful information about the various stages of developing a funded research proposal, including presentations on how to search for funding sources, application procedures at Emory and on line applications, working with Emory's Institutional Review Board (IRB), how to write an effective proposal, and how multidisciplinary granting committees read and evaluate proposals. It also includes a panel of successful graduate students from a range of disciplines who discuss their experience with grants and proposals. See the links below to view agendas from the fall student workshops. The half-day general workshop for faculty covers the same topics described above, but also discusses institutional grants and how grants fit into one's career.

The student intensive grant writing workshop is designed to assist graduate students in further developing their proposals. Students who have proposals in progress are invited to apply for the four-day retreat, held at Amicalola Falls State Park Lodge in North Georgia. The workshop is limited to ten students, who are accompanied by an interdisciplinary group of faculty. Students at this workshop read each other's proposals and participate in group discussions that focus on each student's proposal. Additional sessions focus on the IRB, grammar and style, and methodological issues. Follow the links below for further information about the intensive workshops for students.

In March 2005, the first intensive grant writing workshop for faculty was held at the Emory Conference Center. Nine faculty members with proposals in progress read each participant's proposal before the workshop, and then participated in discussions about the proposals. An interdisciplinary group of faculty led this one-day workshop. See the links below for further information on the intensive workshops for faculty.

In spring semester 2006, the Grant Writing Workshop program was extended further through offering an annual course on Proposal Writing and Research Design in the Humanities. The course is taught by Ivan Karp and Corinne Kratz and cross-listed as ANT 585, ILA 782, HIS 585 and SPAN 797 in order to allow students a number of ways to sign up for it. This course has two goals: 1) to help students formulate clear, focused dissertation research projects with appropriate humanistic research methodologies, and 2) to train students in the preparation and presentation of their research projects in formats such as outside funding applications and dissertation proposals. Students are involved in analyzing research methods and critiquing draft proposals for grants. Although practical logistical considerations have limited the number of departments that can be cross-listed for this course, the seminar is open to students in all humanities departments, and to students in any department whose research focuses on humanistic issues. It is best taken in the second or third year of coursework, when students are beginning to formulate dissertation research projects and to draft grant proposals.

The Grant Writing Program added First Year Forum sessions for new graduate students and a Beginning Grant Writing Workshop for second and third year students during Fall 2006.  The First Year Forum gives students a setting to discuss how to plan their graduate programs, develop their research projects and grant proposals, and identify and acquire the skills and background they need.  The Beginning Grant Writing Workshop provides an opportunity for students to get feedback at an early stage in developing their research proposal.  Students submit two-page initial descriptions of their research projects which are discussed and revised during the three-hour workshop.

The fall and spring grant writing workshops for graduate students are organized by the Center for the Study of Public Scholarship and the Fox Center for Humanistic Inquiry and are sponsored by Emory Graduate School.
