HRI, ORS to offer Humanities grant-writing workshop

The Humanities Research Institute (HRI) will be holding a grant-writing workshop for HRI Associates on Monday, May 1 from 2:30 to 5:30 p.m. in Sankey Chamber.

“We are excited to offer this opportunity to support the innovative research happening in Humanities,” says Elizabeth Vlossak, Associate Dean, Research and Graduate Studies in the Faculty of Humanities. “This event will bring together faculty and grad students to share their research ideas and foster collaboration.”

Research officers with the Office of Research Services (ORS) will provide information and support for the workshop, which is open to HRI members at any stage of their academic careers.

Topics to be covered include:

  • the types of internal and external grants available to Humanities researchers;
  • the practice of ‘scaffolding’ research and funding, which involves building on small seed; grants that fund pilot studies as a base to apply for progressively larger grants;
  • supporting grad students and post-docs through external grants; and
  • applying for large grants.

Researchers will also have blocks of time during the session to work on their grant applications, discuss ideas with colleagues or receive additional support and advice from ORS.
