October 6, 2:00pm, Homer Babbidge Library, 4–209

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.

National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) Summer Stipend Program

The Office of the Vice President for Research (OVPR) would like to announce the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) Summer Stipend Program.  The Summer Stipend Program will only accept two nominations per institution (NEH recognizes UConn Storrs and UConn Health Center as separate institutions), and as such the OVPR will be conducting an internal screening process.

Recipients usually produce scholarly articles, monographs, books, digital materials, archaeological site reports, translations, editions, or other scholarly resources while receiving the NEH summer stipend. Successful applicants will be awarded a stipend of $6,000.

NEH Summer stipends support:

·         Individuals pursuing advanced research that is of value to humanities scholars, general audiences, or both.

·         Continuous full-time work on humanities projects for a period of two consecutive months.

·         Projects at any stage of development.

·         Projects beginning May 2017.

Limited Submission

Because only two nominations can be submitted for this program, an internal screening process is required.  If you are considering submitting an application for this program, an on-line Notification of Intent to Submit must be completed by the requested Intent to Submit Deadline.

When submitting pre-proposals for the internal screening process, please review the Guidelines for updates. Pre-proposals not adhering to these guidelines and instructions will be returned.
