This one-credit intensive mini-course runs for the first five weeks of the fall semester and is open to graduate students across all humanities departments. Students will develop their rough ideas and drafts into solid proposals for the purpose of applying for various internal and external grants, including predoctoral and postdoctoral fellowships, summer programs, internships, international research travel, and support from Fulbright, Mellon, ACLS, etc. To make this course relevant to all participants, we will follow the calendar of grants, fellowships, and other opportunities that open during the academic year. Enrolled students will thus work closely on their proposals for the grants they wish to apply for and be able to submit a finished proposal in time for the application deadline. We will workshop proposals in the order of urgency, i.e. those pertinent to the grants that open sooner will be workshopped first. By the end of the course the students will have produced a solid proposal that ideally could be used for one or more upcoming grants they wish to apply for. Important for the first class meeting (September 4 at 2 pm) : Given that there will only be five 3-hour meetings in this mini-course, enrolled students are expected to arrive at the first meeting with (1) a very rough draft of a single paragraph describing their own research and progress through their research; and (2) a short list of opportunities they wish to apply for in the future, in the order of relevance to their research. After researching opportunities available to humanities graduate students and relevant deadlines, we will start workshopping paragraphs.
