NEH workshop

Douglas Arnold, senior program officer in the education division of the National Endowment for the Humanities, will lead a workshop for ­faculty and administrators on the funding programs of the NEH, an independent grant-making agency of the U.S. government. The workshop will be on April 7, 10:30 a.m.-noon, in room 265 of Park Hall.

The session will feature an overview of NEH funding programs, including research, education, public programs, preservation and access, challenge grants and the State Humanities Councils, with an emphasis on individual research opportunities and education programs. There also will be an introduction to the NEH’s “We the People” initiative, which focuses on American history, culture and ideas. Arnold will discuss the endowment’s application review process and offer grant-writing tips.

The workshop is free and open to faculty and administrators at UGA as well as those from other institutions in the Southeast, but registration is required.

Arnold also will be available from 1-5 p.m. at the Willson Center for Humanities and Arts for a limited number of appointments to discuss possible NEH projects with individuals and small groups. To register, contact the Willson Center by phone (542-3966) or e-mail (
