Alabama Humanities Foundation is sponsoring a National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) grant-writing workshop, hosted by The University of Alabama at Birmingham and Troy University’s Montgomery Campus.

Dr. John Cox, Senior Program Officer at NEH, will conduct the workshops that are designed to raise awareness of funding opportunities in the humanities. Attendance is free, but preregistration is required.

Dr. Cox will relay useful information for anyone who is interested in applying for a NEH grant. He will present an overview of endowment programs and special initiatives, discuss issues involved in the writing and review of applications and facilitate a mock peer-review panel session.

These sessions will be held from 8:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. on the following dates:

Wednesday, February 5Troy University’s Montgomery Campus, Whitley Hall in the Gold Room (2nd floor)  - click here to register.  If you plan to attend this session, download this document which explains the approaches to writing an application:  Montgomery-Mock Panel Samples.

Dr. Cox is also offering the opportunity to sign up for one-on-one consultations to discuss specific projects.  These sessions are available on a first-come, first-serve basis because a limited number of appointments are available. Registrants for one-on-one sessions will be asked to email a brief abstract (not to exceed one page) to Claire Brown at cbrown@alabamahumanities.org by January 28.
