This online workshop will introduce participants to writing research grants, and so the intended audience is participants who have not yet had much grant-writing experience. The focus will be on reading applications in order to ensure fit with the proposed research, honing the research question, and constructing a narrative that will be appealing to the granting agency. We will also discuss grants from various agencies.


Dr. Elizabeth Fagan is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Focused Inquiry at the Virginia Commonwealth University, USA. She is an archaeologist working on peripheral strategies in the South Caucasus during the Hellenistic and Roman periods. Dr. Fagan has been awarded multiple grants, including the Fulbright Hays Dissertation Development Research Award, the University of Chicago Watkins Fellowship, and the ARISC Research Fellowship.
