Limited Submission Announcement

The National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) Summer Stipends support individuals pursuing advanced research that is of value to scholars and general audiences in the humanities. Recipients usually produce articles, monographs, books, digital materials, archaeological site reports, translations, editions, or other scholarly tools. Summer Stipends support projects at any stage of development.

All applicants must have completed their formal education by the application deadline. Individuals who have held a major fellowship or research grant or its equivalent within the last three academic years prior to the deadline are ineligible. Sabbaticals and grants from an individual’s own institution and stipends and grants from other sources supporting study and research during the summer are not considered major fellowships. Recipients of a Summer Stipend in 2005 or after are ineligible. Individuals may not apply for a Summer Stipend and a Teaching Development Fellowship in a given calendar year. Applicants may not receive both an NEH Summer Stipend and an NEH Fellowship, Faculty Research Award, or Fellowship for Advanced Social Science Research on Japan in the same federal fiscal year.

Letters of intent should be limited to a 1-page summary of the proposed project and a 2-page biographical sketch of the applicant.
