I would like to remind E-Sylum readers that the Central States Author Grants program for CSNS's current Fiscal year is open to submissions. Several individuals have already submitted proposals. All grant applications need to be submitted to Ray Lockwood, CNS Education Director by August 31, 2013.
This is a great program and I encourage authors to submit applications for any needed assistance. Books are hard enough to write without having to deal with the expenses involved in their research and publication. Below is more information from the CSNS web site.
