“Getting Fellowships and Getting Published: A Workshop for Graduate Students,” May 2, 2018

Fellow GEMS faculty member Sal Nicolazzo will be offering a workshop for graduate students on May 2 that will teach graduate students the skills most central to writing compelling fellowship/grant applications and that will demystify the process of journal article publication. 

We’ll discuss how to make your research legible and exciting to nonspecialist readers of fellowship applications, how to find, apply for, and make the most of archival research fellowships, and how to overcome common roadblocks to article writing/publication and get your article out to a journal ASAP. 

GEMS will be holding its first symposium on May 18. For more information, click here. For the full program, click here. A map to the event may be found here.
