Apply for funds for scholarly research and writing projects

Emory Report | Nov. 20, 2013

Faculty can apply for funding for scholarly research and writing projects from the Scholarly Writing and Publishing Fund.

Previously known as the Author Development Program, the fund established by the Center for Faculty Development and Excellence (CFDE) is designed to help faculty seeking professional support for projects in development across a range of serious scholarly works, including book manuscripts, article manuscripts, grant writing and digital scholarship.

The call for 2013-2014 proposals supports:

  • Scholarly writing projects in development  
  • Experimental projects that will result in digital media projects or publications.

Applicants can apply to either or both of these tracks.  

A limited number of grants for up to $2,500 are available. These grants are intended to support Emory faculty members facing the challenges of scholarly writing at any stage of their careers and to provide funds for hiring editorial support or a writing coach.

These grants are intended to help with writing and writing-related issues, rather than the technicalities of manuscript preparation.

In addition to the grant program, the Scholarly Writing and Publishing project will host a number of workshops, panel discussions, and other events throughout the spring 2014 semester, including the return of the popular "Meet the Editor/Meet the Agent" program in April.

Applicants with digital projects can consult with staff members of the Emory Center for Digital Scholarship, which also offers workshops and training in digital media production, or with CFDE Associate Director Allison Adams.
