This event will also be livestreamed. Register to attend virtually.

Dr. Matthew Mroz is the Internal Funding and Limited Submissions Coordinator and a member of the Research Development Services team in UConn’s Office of the Vice President for Research (OVPR). Dr. Mroz oversees all aspects of the OVPR’s seed grant competitions, manages the internal review and selection process for limited submission opportunities, coordinates OVPR grantwriting training programs, and generally does whatever he can to support faculty members seeking to grow their research.

He has a PhD in English Literature and Rhetoric from UConn, where he studied and taught early modern literature (particularly the work of John Milton). He also has served as Assistant Director of First-Year Writing at UConn and taught extensively in that program.

In this talk, he will give an overview of the seed grant funding available to researchers in the humanities, explore how grant funding, including internal seed grants, can enhance the productivity and impact of humanities scholars, and answer questions about the application and review process.
