Learn about the grants available from the NEH (National Endowment for the Humanities) to support work in Asian Studies, and how to write effective applications for them. This workshop includes a presentation from an NEH staff member explaining current grant programs and offering application-writing tips; a simulation of an NEH panel session allowing you to eavesdrop on peer reviewers discussing an actual NEH application; and time for discussion and questions. The panelists participating in the simulation are all former NEH grantees and/or NEH peer reviewers. The main focus of the workshop will be NEH’s research grants for individuals (including Fellowships, Summer Stipends, and Japan-US Friendship Commission Fellowships for Advanced Social Science Research on Japan). Much of the advice will, however, apply to other NEH grant programs and to grant programs offered by organizations apart from NEH. The application(s) to be discussed during the panel simulation will be available to conference registrants in advance. The National Endowment for the Humanities is an independent agency of the U.S. Government. For more information on the NEH and its grant programs, see www.neh.gov.
