Recorded webinars for grant-seeking faculty at Liberal Arts Colleges

In 2020, colleagues at Amherst, Bowdoin, Carleton, Colorado, Grinnell, Middlebury, Swarthmore, and Union Colleges, presented a series of webinars aimed at offering guidance to faculty at liberal arts colleges interested in pursuing some of the nation’s most prominent fellowship opportunities. Each webinar features a panel of faculty who have been successful in applying for these fellowship opportunities. The goal of these webinars was to give interested faculty a sense of how colleagues at other liberal arts colleges have approached these competitions. The webinars include panel discussions from the successful faculty and question and answer sessions. Each webinar focuses on one particular funding opportunity. The recordings can be found below. For questions about these opportunities or for assistance in applying, please reach out to Beth Jager in the Office of Institutional Philanthropy.
