Dear Colleagues,

This is just to remind you that the deadline for funding applications to
the AHRC ICT Methods Network is 30 June 2007.

The AHRC ICT Methods Network invites the arts and humanities Higher
Education community in the UK to submit proposals for Methods Network
activities. Activities may include workshops, seminars, focused
workgroups, postgraduate training events and publications.

The Methods Network is keen to support both single- and
cross-disciplinary proposals and those that encourage new collaborative
frameworks between technical specialists and arts and humanities
researchers. The primary emphasis is on the use and reuse of digital

Proposals for hybrid activities such as workshop/seminar/workgroup
combinations are also welcomed, as are proposals for any other activity
which falls within the Methods Network remit to support and promote the
uses of advanced ICT methods in academic research.

Funding of up to £5000 is available for workshops and hybrid activities.
Workshops provide training in advanced ICT methods for community members
within academic institutions. They engage with issues such as: formal
methods in analysis of source data and the creation of technical models;
working with multiple technologies; and other matters of vital practical
interest to the community.

Funding of up to £2000 is available for seminars. These may concentrate
on highly-defined topics of interest and also problem areas within the
community or may have a more general focus.

For information on eligibility and how to apply for funding see the
Methods Network website (www.methodsnetwork.ac.uk).

Please be aware that all applicants are expected to submit fully-formed
proposals with full programme, budget and projected outcome details and
with particular emphasis on the research significance of the proposed
activity. Applications that fail to provide all required details will
not be considered for funding. For further information about submitting
a proposal contact Hazel Gardiner (hazel.gardiner_at_kcl.ac.uk).

Forthcoming Methods Network Funded Activities

We welcome applications from individuals who would like to attend
Methods Network workshops and seminars, but must emphasise that
registration is essential for these activities. Participants are also
expected to make an active contribution to the activity. Occasionally a
Methods Network event will be by invitation only, but all resulting
materials, including (where appropriate) podcasts, wikis, training
workbooks, reports and publications will be made freely available to the
community via the Methods Network website. All enquiries about
registration for the Methods Network activities listed below should be
sent by email to methnet_at_kcl.ac.uk. For further information about the

The Grant Institute

Grants 101: Professional Grant Proposal Writing Workshop
will be held at
North Dakota State University
Fargo, North Dakota
August 1 3, 2007
8:00 AM - 5:00 PM

The Grant Institute's Grants 101 course is an intensive and detailed
introduction to the process, structure, and skill of professional
proposal writing. This course is characterized by its ability to act as
a thorough overview, introduction, and refresher at the same time. In
this course, participants will learn the entire proposal writing process
and complete the course with a solid understanding of not only the ideal
proposal structure, but a holistic understanding of the essential
factors, which determine whether or not a program gets funded. Through
the completion of interactive exercises and activities, participants
will complement expert lectures by putting proven techniques into
practice. This course is designed for both the beginner looking for a
thorough introduction and the intermediate looking for a refresher
course that will strengthen their grant acquisition skills. This class,
simply put, is designed to get results by creating professional grant
proposal writers.

Participants will become competent program planning and proposal writing
professionals after successful completion of the Grants 101 course. In
three active and informative days, students will be exposed to the art
of successful grant writing practices, and led on a journey that ends
with a masterful grant proposal.

Grants 101 consists of three (3) courses that will be completed during
the three-day workshop.

(1) Fundamentals of Program Planning

This course is centered on the belief that "it's all about the program."
This intensive course will teach professional program development
essentials and program evaluation. While most grant writing "workshops"
treat program development and evaluation as separate from the writing of
a proposal, this class will teach students the relationship between
overall program planning and grant writing.

(2) Professional Grant Writing

Designed for both the novice and experienced grant writer, this course
will make each student an overall proposal writing specialist. In
addition to teaching the basic components of a grant proposal,
successful approaches, and the do's and don'ts of grant writing, this
course is infused with expert principles that will lead to a mastery of
the process. Strategy resides at the forefront of this course's intent
to illustrate grant writing as an integrated, multidimensional, and
dynamic endeavor. Each student will learn to stop writing the grant and
to start writing the story. Ultimately, this class will illustrate how
each component of the grant proposal represents an opportunity to use
proven techniques for generating support.

(3) Grant Research

At its foundation, this course will address the basics of foundation,
corporation, and government grant research. However, this course will
teach a strategic funding research approach that encourages students to
see research not as something they do before they write a proposal, but
as an integrated part of the grant seeking process. Students will be
exposed to online and database research tools, as well as publications
and directories that contain information about foundation, corporation,
and government grant opportunities. Focusing on funding sources and
basic social science research, this course teaches students how to use
research as part of a strategic grant acquisition effort.


$597.00 tuition includes all materials and certificates.

Each student will receive:

*The Grant Institute Certificate in Professional Grant Writing

*The Grant Institute's Guide to Successful Grant Writing

*The Grant Institute Grant Writer's Workbook with sample proposals,
forms, and outlines
