Humanities and Social Sciences: Getting Funded, Getting Published Particularly in the humanities and social sciences, a number of grant and fellowship opportunities exist for faculty to wish to produce a major piece of scholarly work, such as from the NEH and ACLS. In addition to examining profiles of select funding opportunities, in this session you will learn about the similarities and differences between writing persuasive grant proposals and successful book proposals. Insider secrets from a federal grant program officer and from a seasoned book editor will also be shared. REJECTED!—Time to Reconsider or to Revise and Resubmit? While funding for research is abundant in STEM and health sciences—NIH and NSF collectively awarded $40 billion last year—competition is intense and success rates can be disappointingly low. And nothing is more frustrating than when reviews for a rejected proposal come back as “excellent,” “excellent,” and “fair.” You will examine review structures and processes and explore inconsistencies in reviewer ratings to begin strategizing a pathway forward. A model for crafting an opening to a proposal resubmission will also be shared.
