NEH Summer Stipends Program for 2017

The National Endowment for the Humanities offers a competitive program for summer stipends. The stipends support individuals pursuing advanced research that is of value to humanities scholars, general audiences, or both. The college may nominate two faculty members. 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 usually produce articles, monographs, books, digital materials, archaeological site reports, translations, editions, or other scholarly resources. Summer Stipends normally support work carried out during the summer months, but arrangements can be made for other times of the year, and support projects at any stage of development. The summer stipend is a great opportunity to lay the foundation for future grant applications. More information about this program and the application process may be found at
