Interdisciplinary Studies of Writing is the research program within the Center for Writing. ISW supports research into the ways in which writing can foster learning in and across the disciplines. Besides funding research that spans theory and practice, ISW creates connections throughout the University community by promoting discussion on the study and teaching of writing.
The Center’s Interdisciplinary Studies of Writing program offers grants to support the research of University of Minnesota scholars and teachers into writing and literacy. The application process involves two parts; the first part, submitting a letter of intent, must be completed by Monday, February 6, 2017.
