Then below it says "Applications due March 25" and includes the writing center logo.The UW–Madison Graduate School is launching the Humanities Grant Writing Camp (HGWC) this May. Hosted by the Institute for Research in the Humanities (IRH) and facilitated by the UW-Madison Writing Center, the four-day camp (May 23–26, 2022, 9 am to 3:30 pm) provides participants with a structured introduction to the nuts-and-bolts of writing funding proposals to support a wide range of humanities work, from research travel and dissertation writing to public humanities projects. Applications will be accepted until March 25 and require an advisor endorsement. Click here for the application form. Notifications will be made by April 15.

Presentations on funding sources and grant writing by faculty, staff, and alumni will inform the writing workshop sessions. Topics will include the development of compelling, readable, and accessible project descriptions, together with feasible timelines and budgets, as well as drafting, critiquing, and revising grant proposals. HGWC participants will have the opportunity to network with peers about the grant-seeking and grant-writing process and engage in guided peer review. After the camp, participants will also have the opportunity to submit draft grant proposals to a review panel and receive feedback from a diverse set of disciplinary and career perspectives in advance of major fall grant deadlines.

The grant writing camp will be facilitated in a hybrid format. Participants may join either virtually or in person at the IRH. Accepted applicants will be asked to indicate their likely participation modality.

HGWC participants will receive a stipend of $250. A light breakfast will be provided for in-person participants. Students with children who are enrolled for summer courses may be eligible for financial assistance through the Child Care Tuition Assistance Program; applicants must have a confirmed space at an approved (licensed/accredited) child care provider in Wisconsin.
