“Kean University Professor John Gruesser has been awarded a “Scholarly Editions and Translations” grant by the National Endowment for the Humanities. The project funds the production and publication of a scholarly edition of “The Hindered Hand”, a novel by an African-American author, Sutton Griggs. Griggs, who published more novels at the turn of the twentieth century than any other African American, strove to establish a viable black print culture in the United States.

Current Grant Opportunities 

ORSP has implemented a new policy, approved effective October 1, 2015, that all proposal documents must be submitted a minimum of
7 days before the funder’s due date. This internal deadline allows sufficient time to review specific content and formatting requirements and to ensure the budget conforms with the funder’s requirements and with Kean University policies. Proposals that have not been submitted to ORSP by the internal deadline will not be accepted. We recognize there may be instances when this deadline cannot be followed, such as late notice from a sponsor or a collaborator, and will evaluate those proposals on a case-by-case basis.
