NMHC offers FREE Grant Workshop in Socorro!
16 Aug 2014
The New Mexico Humanities Council (NMHC) in conjunction with the Socorro Public Library in Socorro invites grant applicants to a Grant workshop on Wednesday, August 27 from 5:00-7:00 p.m. This workshop will be held at the Socorro Public Library on 401 Park St. Any non-profit organization or institution is eligible to apply for NMHC support for a public project in the humanities.
This workshop will cover some of the essential skills and strategies needed to prepare successful grant applications for humanities based programs. It will provide participants with tools to help them conceptualize and plan public program grants.
NMHC Senior Program Officer K. Michelle Quisenberry will field questions about applying for grants for various types of projects, including book and film discussions, local and community history projects, literary symposia, community conversations, and oral history projects which encourage civic dialogue and reflection. The NMHC makes it a priority to fund projects developed by, for, or aimed at reaching new audiences. The NMHC?s deadline for submitting proposals for the next grant cycle is October 1, 2014.
The workshop is organized around key questions relating to NMHC grant support, including WHAT is submitted in a grant application and, HOW to structure an application and supporting materials. The workshop is intended primarily as an introduction to the NMHC grant program, and will be most useful for new or relatively inexperienced grant writers.
By the time the workshop concludes participants should be well positioned to prepare and submit their own applications to support humanities based public programs in their community!
Please join the New Mexico Humanities Council at the Socorro Public Library on Wednesday, August 27, from 5:00?7:00 p.m. Feel free to bring any works in progress you may want to share to get some feedback. Please RSVP with at (575) 835-1114 or email@example.com.
