NEH Fellowships: Advice from Awardees at Liberal Arts Colleges

Have you ever considered applying for an NEH Fellowship? If so, a group of grants officers from liberal arts colleges will be hosting a webinar from 10-11:30 AM Central on February 17 called “NEH Fellowships: Advice from Liberal Arts College Faculty.” Three NEH Fellowship awardees who received their fellowships while at liberal arts colleges (Eileen Kane, associate professor of history at Connecticut College; Roy Pérez, former associate professor of English and American ethnic studies at Willamette University, now assistant professor of ethnic studies and critical gender studies at UCSD; and Asuka Sango, associate professor of religion, chair of religion, and director of Asian studies at Carleton College), as well as one who recently reviewed for the program (Claire Oberon Garcia, dean of the faculty and professor of English at Colorado College) will provide a panel discussion of how they approached the grant competition, plus Q&A with participants. This webinar should be useful for faculty at liberal arts colleges who are interested in applying for the NEH Fellowship in 2021 (or further into the future) and would like a sense of how colleagues at liberal arts colleges have approached the competition. By providing insights from both winners and reviewers, we’re hoping to provide some useful tips even for scholars who are seasoned applicants.
