The UCHRI Mid-Career Faculty Manuscript Workshop Grant provides financial resources to an associate faculty member to convene a one- to two-day workshop aimed at preparing their book manuscript for submission to a publisher. The purpose of this workshop is to provide mid-career UC faculty with quality feedback from experts in the field on a first full draft of a second book manuscript in preparation for submission to a publisher for a contract or for publication (the draft must include versions of every chapter to be included in the final book). Based upon successful national models, the workshop serves as an opportunity to convene experts in the field (typically around five discussants, including one or two non-UC experts) to contribute to the intellectual development of the manuscript.
Eligible Applicants: UC faculty (tenure track) in the humanities or humanistic social sciences who are currently completing their second book project
Maximum Award: Up to $5,000 (up to 4 awards)
