Subject: UPDATE - NEH Summer Stipends

There’s been an UPDATE to the “LIMITED SUBMISSION: NEH  – Summer Stipends” email sent on 6/4/2013. This update changes the internal notification process (contact person and deadline) and replaces it with an internal pre-proposal requirement.  Please disregard the original internal notification process.   See below for the new internal requirements and contact.  Thanks.

NEH Summer Stipends



Internal pre-proposal deadline: Wednesday, August 7, 2013; notification of selection by Wednesday, August 21, 2013

* Pre-proposals must be received by Roxanne Male’-Brune, male-bru at ohio.edu<mailto:male-bru at ohio.edu<mailto:male-bru at ohio.edu%3cmailto:male-bru at ohio.edu>>  no later than 4:00 pm on Wednesday, August 7, 2013

External proposal deadline: Thursday, September 26, 2013


Questions regarding the application for nomination process should be directed to Roxanne Male'-Brune, male-bru at ohio.edu<mailto:male-bru at ohio.edu<mailto:male-bru at ohio.edu%3cmailto:male-bru at ohio.edu>>.  The pre-proposal should include a project narrative (not to exceed 3 single-spaced pages, 11 font type, and 1” margins) which concisely addresses the four bulleted items listed in the guidelines under “1. Narrative—Not to Exceed Three Single-Spaced Pages.”

Project description:

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 full-time continuous work on a humanities project for a period of two months for $6,000.

·         support projects at any stage of development.

·         are awarded to individual scholars. Organizations are not eligible to apply.

The Summer Stipends program welcomes projects that respond to NEH’s Bridging Cultures initiative. Such projects could focus on cultures internationally or within the United States. International projects might seek to enlarge Americans’ understanding of other places and times, as well as other perspectives and intellectual traditions. American projects might explore the great variety of cultural influences on, and myriad subcultures within, American society. These projects might also investigate how Americans have approached and attempted to surmount seemingly unbridgeable cultural divides, or examine the ideals of civility and civic discourse that have informed this quest. In connection with a focus on civic discourse, projects might explore the role of women in America’s civic life as well as the civic role of women in other cultures and regions of the world.


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.

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 received Summer Stipends may apply to support a new stage in their projects. These applications do not receive special consideration and will be judged by the same criteria as others in the competition. However, NEH will ask evaluators to review the accomplishments from the prior Summer Stipends award and determine if the project warrants additional support.

Applicants successful in more than one NEH-administered program in support of individual research (for example, Awards for Faculty, Fellowships, Summer Stipends) may hold only ONE award in the 2014 federal fiscal year (October 1, 2013-September 30, 2014).

Number of applicants:

Ohio University may nominate two faculty members.

Faculty members teaching full-time must be nominated by Ohio University to apply for a Summer Stipend. Once faculty members are nominated by their institutions, they may submit their applications via Grants.gov. Any faculty member is eligible for nomination.

The following individuals may apply online without a nomination:

*   independent scholars not affiliated with a college or university;

*   college or university staff members who are not faculty members and will not be teaching during the academic year preceding the award tenure; and

*   emeritus faculty; and

*   adjunct faculty, part-time faculty, and applicants with academic appointments that terminate by the summer of the award tenure.
