Summary: Summer stipends support individuals pursuing advanced research that is of value to humanities scholars, general audiences, or both. Recipients usually produce articles, monographs, books, digital materials, archaeological site reports, translations, editions, or other scholarly resources.  Summer stipends support continuous full-time work on a humanities project for a period of two months.  Summer stipends support projects at any stage of development.

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. Summer stipends normally support work carried out during the summer months, but arrangements can be made for other times of the year.
