DANM TUESDAYS :: JC Ross on Grant Getting

Tuesday, October 16, 2012 - 11:00pm to Wednesday, October 17, 2012 - 1:00am


DANM TUESDAYS 4-6 allow us to come together each week to listen, learn and share our work and play. This time is reserved for workshops, visiting speakers, student and faculty presentations, and community development. 

We are pleased to kick-off the DANM TUESDAYS 4-6 events with this workshop:


Moola: Planning Your Grant-Getting to Support Your Artistic Growth

with J.C. Ross,  Assistant Director of Research Initiatives and Grants for the Arts Division


A hands-on, interdisciplinary workshop introducing the world of grant-getting for graduate students. Among the topics we'll discuss: how to conceive a project so as to maximize its prospects of funding, as well as the importance (and art) of making a good match with grantor priorities. We'll also discuss writing tips that get the thing drafted early, make it memorable, and make it stand out from the pack.  

J.C. Ross is the Assistant Director of Research Initiatives and Grants for the Arts Division. A former journalist, she received her MA in writing from Hollins University, her MFA from the University of Arizona, and her Ph.D. in philosophy (language and ethics) from The Pennsylvania State University. In addition to working as a grant writer and editor at Stanford, she has taught diverse humanities courses from critical thinking and logic, to free speech and social responsibility, ethics, and writing for more than 15 years at universities such as Arizona, USC, and Santa Clara. She has a special interest in writing process and psychology (including helping people develop a writing process that works for them), and what she loves about grant writing – in addition to hearing that someone has received money! – is the opportunity to work on a wide range of interesting projects promoting the arts in society.

Join us with your questions on October 16 at 4:00 in DARC 206.

All Arts Division graduate students are welcome.


Mark your calendars! 

The plan is for these gatherings to take place on Tuesdays in DARC 206 from 4-6pm.
