MANUSCRIPT / FACULTY GRANT WRITING GROUPS


TIIS sponsors a program for Trinity faculty members who are either preparing a new grant application or in the   final stages of preparing a manuscript for submission to a press, or for publication. The faculty member who wishes to have such a grant document or manuscript read by a group of faculty would work with TIIS’s co-directors to select a small group of faculty from Trinity and one off-campus reader, all of whom would read the manuscript or grant document and meet for a daylong workshop to discuss it. Lunch and snacks are provided, and the participants receive a stipend.​
