AWAC Workshops on Grantwriting

The Research & Publications Committee of the Association for Writing Across the Curriculum invites AWAC members to a series of workshops on grantwriting. Two online, synchronous sessions will be led by Elizabeth Wardle, Howe Distinguished Professor of Written Communication and Director, Howe Center for Writing Excellence, Miami University (Ohio). Prior to becoming an academic, Elizabeth was a fundraiser and grantwriter for non-profits. She has also taught undergraduate grantwriting courses.

This 2-part series will help participants understand possible grant funding sources and the genre of the grant proposal. Participants are encouraged but not required to attend both sessions.

Zoom links/calendar invites will be sent to registrants ahead of the sessions. Attendance is limited to AWAC members.
