NEH to Share Two New Opportunities with GRC Members Barbara Ashbrook, Assistant Director of the Division of Education Programs at the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH), will lead a GRC web conference on two new funding opportunities to improve the quality of humanities education in undergraduate institutions. Questions will be taken on the Teaching Development Fellowships program, providing a rare opportunity for applicants to receive detailed guidance, as draft proposals will not be reviewed by NEH staff prior to the October 1, 2008 deadline. Participants will also be among the first to learn about a new NEH program for teaching-intensive undergraduate institutions, an opportunity particularly well-suited to many GRC members. Ashbrook reports that the solicitation is still under development and will be released just after Labor Day.

Developing a Powerful Statement of Need This 90-minute webinar is designed for both seasoned grant writers and those with little or no experience. You will learn how to "paint a picture" so that grantmakers understand the extent of the problem or need faced by your community. In addition, the webinar will include advice on how to gather facts and statistics from the Internet in order to bolster your need statement. The webinar will cover:

  • how to best document the need
  • gathering the latest information (how to use the internet and how not to use the internet)
  • documenting the need for a specific community
  • how to motivate the grant maker (painting the picture)
  • creating a sense of urgency, and the language you should use
