Limited Submission Announcement

Projects supported by National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) Summer Stipends cover a variety of activities. They may contribute to scholarly knowledge, to the advancement of teaching, or to the general public's understanding of the humanities. Such work might eventually produce scholarly articles, a monograph on a specialized subject, a book-length treatment of a broad topic, an archaeological site report, a translation, an edition, or other scholarly tool in either traditional or electronic formats.

All scholars who have completed their formal academic training are eligible for Summer Stipends.

Each college and university in the United States and its jurisdictions may nominate two members of its faculty for the Summer Stipends competition. Of the two, at least one should be a junior nominee. For the purposes of the Summer Stipends program, academic applicants who hold the rank of instructor or assistant professor or who are at comparably early stages of their careers will be considered junior nominees. Those holding the rank of associate professor or professor will be considered senior nominees.

Applicants should be U.S. citizens, native residents of U.S. jurisdictions, or foreign nationals who have been legal residents in United States jurisdictions for at least the three years immediately preceding the application deadline.

Individuals may apply for both a Summer Stipend and a Fellowship, but they may not hold both in any given fiscal or calendar year. Summer Stipends provide $6,000 for two consecutive months of full-time research and writing. Recipients must work full-time on their projects for these two months, and may hold other research grants supporting the same project during this time.

Recipients of a Summer Stipend in 2004 or after are ineligible.

Because MU is limited to two applications for this program, letters of intent must be submitted to the Office of Research,, no later than 4:00 p.m., Friday, August 15, 2008. Letters of intent should be limited to a 1-page summary of the proposed project and a 2-page biographical sketch of the applicant.
