National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) Regional Seminar
Sponsored by the Office of the Vice President for Research, Purdue University

Stewart Center, Room 214

The featured speaker is Jane Aikin, director of the Division of Research Programs at the NEH. Panelists will include Purdue faculty members experienced with the NEH proposal process.  This is an excellent opportunity for faculty from area colleges and universities to learn more about funding opportunities with the primary federal funder of research and scholarship in the humanities!

Day one sessions include:
  • Overview of NEH mission and programs
  • NEH review process, including a panel discussion on successful applications
  • Individual meetings with attendees to discuss their research as it relates to NEH (on day one, priority for these sessions will be given to out-of-town participants)
  • An evening reception that will allow participants to network with colleagues from Purdue and other institutions who conduct research in areas funded by NEH
