The Institute for the Arts and Humanities launched a Grants Mentoring initiative in 2008 to help arts and humanities faculty attract more national grant funding for their work from such major funding sources as the National Endowment for the Arts, the National Endowment for the Humanities, The John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation, the American Council of Learned Societies and the National Humanities Center.
In addition to hosting an annual grants seminar and grants mentoring workshop, the IAH has created a Funding Resources page and database of successful grants and fellowship proposals submitted by UNC faculty.
If you know a funding resource that might be useful for UNC faculty, please submit a resource for us to add to the Web site. If you are willing to share a winning proposal with your colleagues at UNC, please send an email to Bryan Koen at email@example.com. The Sample Proposals are password protected so that they are available only to members of the UNC-Chapel Hill campus community.
Annual Grants Seminar
The IAH inaugurated its Grants Mentoring program in February 2008 with the first Grants Seminar. The seminar featured faculty who had successfully applied for research grants or served on review committees of these foundations, along with senior program staff representing these major grant-making agencies.
Annual Grants Mentoring Workshop
We hosted our first Grants Mentoring Workshop in May 2008, and participation continues to grow each year. In our model, faculty mentors lead small-group workshops to provide feedback and guidance to colleagues as they craft proposals for various grants in the arts, humanities and qualitative social sciences.
Our upcoming fall 2012 grants mentoring workshop will take place on September 5, 2012 (with a follow-up session on September 12); for more information, please click HERE.
