Fred Winter of NEH will give a talk on "How to Win Humanities Grants" at 5 p.m. on Feb. 18.

In addition to his work in federal grant making, Fred is an experienced fundraiser.  He directed the development office at the Association of American Colleges and Universities and was the director of Corporate and Foundation Relations at Hood College.  

When he moved to Washington, DC, in 1993, he was a tenured Professor of Classics atThe Graduate Center of the City University of New York and the undergraduate program at Brooklyn College.  Fred received his B.A. in Classical Greek Language from Brooklyn College of the City University of New York and Ph.D. in Classical Archaeology from the University of Pennsylvania. 

Fred is currently vice-chair of the board of the Council of American OverseasResearch Centers, and he serves on the Cultural Heritage Committee of the American Schools of Oriental Research.
