The workshop features NEH program officer Daniel Sack and is presented by UH West Oʻahu’s Office of Professional Development & Academic Support (OPDAS) and the Institute of Engaged Scholarship (IES).
“The NEH seminar is brought to UH West Oʻahu to help support faculty who are interested in finding funding and resources to support their research and teaching,” said Melissa Saul, director of IES.
The NEH is an independent federal agency created in 1965 and is one of the largest funders of humanities programs in the United States. The agency offers a wide variety of grants and resources for faculty in the humanities.
Grants can support research, public programs, curricular development, and preservation of cultural materials. Resources include faculty enrichment, curricular modules, and research materials.
In the workshop, Sack will introduce these opportunities, offer application-writing suggestions, and answer questions.
Sack is a program officer in the Division of Research Programs at the NEH, where he works with applicants and evaluators for the NEH’s scholarly programs. A historian of American religion, he has worked at the University of Chicago Divinity School, the Associated Colleges of the Midwest, and Hope College.
