Support for Grant Writing

The Writing Institute is happy to announce that Dana Nowlin-Russell is available to consult one-on-one with faculty who are writing grant proposals this Spring Term.

Dana regularly teaches the Grant Writing course in the English Department, and she has recently added a Grant Writing for Research course to the undergraduate course catalog. She is especially interested in helping faculty writers organize proposal information, generate and clarify ideas, work through “writer’s block,” and develop language appropriate for funders. 

To make an appointment with Dana, visit the Writing Center scheduler, look for Dana’s name (this term, she is available Mondays throughout the day, Wednesdays later afternoon, and Friday mornings) and make an appointment.

When you are scheduling your appointment, please set clear intentions. Provide a few sentences that answer these questions: “How can we make the most out of this session?” and “What am I writing about (or what do I want to write about)?” If possible, note any relevant proposal information, such as the funder's name (if applicable), focus area(s), and deadlines.
