Many graduate programmes train PhD students in the physical and biological sciences on how to apply for and manage grants. But many humanities and social science scholars have to teach themselves. Written in encouraging language that doesn’t assume the reader has already been through the process, this new book provides guidance, on everything from thinking of a project to identifying potential sources of funding to the application process. It features tips on how graduate students, postdocs, and young faculty members can present themselves and their work in the best possible light.
The author, Raphael B. Folsom, is associate professor of history at the University of Oklahoma and author of The Yaquis and the Empire, which won numerous prizes including the Latin American Studies Association Social Science Book Award.
