Proposal Development and Submission for Humanities Scholars Session 2
Proposal Development and Submission for Humanities Scholars
This series of three presentations addresses the value of funded research for career development for faculty working in the humanities. The presentations should give participants a basic understanding of the principles of preparing and submitting funding proposals and will culminate in the start of an actual proposal. Participants are urged to attend all three workshops, and we anticipate that the series will be repeated during fall semester 2017. This series is sponsored by OVCR and the IUPUI School of Liberal Arts.
Session 2: Top 10 Success and Blunders in Proposal Development and Submission
Target Audience: IUPUI and IUPUC faculty and librarians working in the humanities
This session will cover best practices for developing a proposal whose components—administrative and technical—build a cohesive and persuasive case for funding, and the role played by the SLA Office of Research and the IUPUI Office of Research Administration in the submission process. We’ll focus on the administrative documents, including budget and budget narrative, and their role in answering all the questions reviewers may have so your proposal goes straight to the “Let’s Fund This One!” stack. We’ll have a look at common blunders too, to help prevent your proposal from ending up in the “Do Not Review” or “Do Not Fund” group. Participants will leave with tools to facilitate the preparation process and meeting the routing and submission deadlines.
