The College of Arts and Sciences is hosting an internal competition for nominations to the National Endowment for the Humanities. While stipends are awarded to individuals, not organizations, the NEH requires all full-time faculty applicants to be nominated by an official on their campus. Because of the restricted number of nominations allowed per institution, the College of Arts and Sciences conducts an internal competition to select the university’s two nominees. The CAS Office of Research Administration and Grant Development coordinates the internal competition.
About the program
- Summer Stipends support individuals pursuing advanced research that is of value to humanities scholars, general audiences, or both.
- Eligible projects usually result in articles, monographs, books, digital materials and publications, archaeological site reports, translations, or editions. Projects must incorporate analysis and not result solely in the collection of data.
- Summer Stipends support continuous full-time work on a humanities project for a period of two consecutive months.
- Summer Stipends support projects at any stage of development. NEH funds may support recipients’ compensation, travel, and other costs related to the proposed scholarly research.
- Summer Stipends are awarded to individual scholars. Organizations are not eligible to apply.
