For a Zoom panel presentation

In this session, faculty who have been successful in writing, obtaining, and overseeing grants will share their stories.  Our goal is to provide tips and insights into the process, and help you to think about how to fund your own research and creative work.  Panelists and an example of their grant-funded projects include:

  • Dr. Jennifer Adair, Associate Professor of History.  NEH Fellowship for research on “Politics, Human Rights, and Argentina's Transition to Democracy in the 1980s”. 
  • Dr. Ashley Byun, Associate Professor of Biology.  Arizona Center for Nature Conservation (ACNC)/Phoenix Zoo Conservation & Science Grant Program for her project “Using local ethnozoological information to locate and document the distribution of the southern muriqui” in the Serra do Mar, Brazil.
