Grant-Writing Seminar at Concord, 4 p.m., Wednesday, September 10

Athens, W. Va. – A grant-writing seminar will be conducted at 4 p.m., Wednesday, September 10 in the Concord Room (Marsh Hall), where instruction will be given on securing grants from the West Virginia Humanities Council. Pam LeRose, grants coordinator for the Humanities Council will be conducting the seminar, which is free to the general public.

“We invite college faculty, schoolteachers, librarians, and nonprofit organizations interested in writing grants for humanities programming to this free one-hour grant-writing seminar. This short-but-sweet workshop will not only explain the Council’s grant programs and applications, but will also provide general grant-writing tips to improve proposals when applying to other funding institutions,” said Pam LeRose, grants director.

The Council’s grants are for humanities events including fellowships, symposiums, conferences, travel exhibits, lectures, writer-in-residence programs, language immersion weekends, and school projects. Mercer County Schools, Concord College, Bluefield State College, Windhorse Healing Arts Center, the West Virginia Heritage Quilt Research Project (culminating into a published quilt book) and Concord College faculty are past recipients of the Humanities Council’s grant awards.

“Attendees will gain valuable knowledge from this seminar,” stated Concord President Jerry Beasley.

At 7 p.m. the same day award-winning novelist Mary Lee Settle, a Charleston, W.Va., native, will be lecturing in room M-105 in the Alexander Fine Arts Center.

The grant-writing seminar and Mary Lee Settle program are both sponsored by the West Virginia Humanities Council.
