Description:

Request a Grant Writer

Grants of $6,000 to USA teachers, scholars, and researchers for scholarly research projects in the humanities disciplines. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take several weeks to complete. Applications are welcome from scholars in all humanities and related social sciences disciplines, and from independent scholars and junior scholars.

The National Endowment for the Humanities’ Summer Stipends program aims to stimulate new research in the humanities and its publication. The program works to accomplish this goal by:

  • Providing small awards to individuals pursuing advanced research that is of value to humanities scholars, general audiences, or both
  • Supporting projects at any stage of development, but especially early-stage research and late-stage writing in which small awards are most effective
  • Furthering the NEH’s commitment to diversity and inclusion in the humanities by encouraging applications from independent scholars and faculty at Hispanic Serving Institutions, Historically Black Colleges and Universities, Tribal Colleges and Universities, and community colleges

Summer Stipends support continuous full-time work on a humanities project for a period of two consecutive months.  NEH funds may support recipients’ compensation, travel, and other costs related to the proposed scholarly research.

NEH is especially interested in supporting projects that advance humanities-related work in the following areas.

“A More Perfect Union”: NEH Special Initiative Advancing Civic Education and Commemorating the Nation’s 250th Anniversary

For more information on this priority, see: https://www.neh.gov/sites/default/files/inline-files/Summer%20Stipends%20NOFO%202020%20and%202021%2020200923-FT.pdf#page=5

Recipients must work full-time on their projects for these two months and may hold other nonNEH sources of support (for example, sabbaticals and supplementary funding) or grants for the same project during the Summer Stipend period of performance. Summer Stipends normally support work carried out during the summer months, but arrangements can be made for other times of the year.
