Recent events in Washington have made funds for research and curriculum development increasingly scarce. With the new budget, government agencies are faced with canceling or suspending many long-standing competitions at the last minute. Although research opportunities still exist, they will become even more competitive than they already are. A number of former program officers at the National Endowment for the Humanities and the National Science Foundation have recently formed a consulting group to help you make your grants more competitive in this challenging environment.

Bonnie Magness-Gardiner, consulting partner in National Grants & Fellowships Consultants, will hold a two-hour grants workshop on Saturday, January 6, from 9:30 to 11:30 AM., in the Summit Room of the Marriott Marquis. This informational session is designed to provide you with the most current information about

  • federal and private funding opportunities,
  • promoting individual scholarly research within an institutional framework,
  • framing research for specific requests for proposals,
  • effective grant writing,
  • grant-review procedures, and
  • budgets

Dr. Magness-Gardiner will also be available for drop-in consultation or scheduled appointments at booth 3 in the book exhibit are January 6 and 7. If you cannot attend annual meeting and would like information about current funding opportunities or the services offered by National Grants & Fellowships Consultants, call (202) 508-8248.
