NEH Summer Stipends 2015
National Endowment for the Humanities
Limited Submission Program (LSP): This funding opportunity and the Limited Submission Program (LSP) is open to all Texas A&M University faculty and principal investigators who meet the eligibility requirements. Texas A&M and The Texas A&M University System agencies jointly administer this process to select the proposal(s) that will be submitted to the sponsor in response to this solicitation.
Institutional Eligibility: Summer Stipends are awarded to individual scholars. Organizations are not eligible to apply. Each college and university in the United States and its jurisdictions may nominate two faculty members.
PI Eligibility: The Summer Stipends program accepts applications only from individual researchers, teachers, and writers, whether they have an institutional affiliation or not. Applicants with college or university affiliations must, however, be nominated by their institutions. (See the “Nomination of college and university faculty” section, below.) Organizations are not eligible to apply for Summer Stipends.
All applicants must have completed their formal education by the application deadline. While applicants need not have advanced degrees, individuals currently enrolled in a degree-granting program are ineligible to apply. Applicants who have satisfied all the requirements for a degree and are awaiting its conferral may apply, but such applicants need a letter from the dean of the conferring school, attesting to the applicant’s status as of September 30, 2014. This letter must be received by the Summer Stipends program by October 21, 2014. You may fax the letter to the program at 202-606-8204; alternatively, you may include a PDF version of the signed letter as an attachment to an e-mail message sent to email@example.com.
U.S. citizens, whether they reside inside or outside the United States, are eligible to apply. Foreign nationals who have been living in the United States or its jurisdictions for at least the three years immediately preceding the application deadline are also eligible.
Individuals who have held or been awarded a major fellowship or research grant or its equivalent within the three academic years prior to the deadline are ineligible. A “major fellowship or research grant” is a postdoctoral research award that provides a stipend of at least $15,000. 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. If you have received any fellowships or research grants within the three years prior to the deadline, please indicate on your résumé the total amount of each award or grant.

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.
Those with questions are encouraged to contact the Summer Stipends staff at firstname.lastname@example.org.
