National Endowment for the Humanities Summer Stipend Competition
Summer Stipends support individuals pursuing advanced research that is of value to humanities scholars, general audiences, or both. 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. The Summer Stipends program accepts applications from 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
All applicants for Summer Stipends must submit their proposals through Grants.gov, the central federal government portal for all grant applications. What follows is a step-by-step guide for submitting your application through Grants.gov.
Online applications accepted through September 29, 2011. The internal deadline for Augustana College is September 8, 2011 as the college can only nominate two applicants. For questions, please contact Sherry Docherty. More information can be found at http://www.neh.gov/grants/guidelines/stipends.html#program.
National Endowment for the Humanities Enduring Questions Course Development
The NEH Enduring Questions grant program supports the development of a new course that will foster intellectual community through the study of an enduring question. This course will encourage undergraduates and teachers to grapple with a fundamental question addressed by the humanities, and to join together in a deep and sustained program of reading in order to encounter influential thinkers over the centuries and into the present day. No discipline, field, or profession can lay an exclusive claim to enduring questions. They have long held interest for young people, and they allow for a special, intense dialogue across generations. The Enduring Questions grant program helps promote such dialogue in today's undergraduate environment.
Courses may be taught by faculty members from any department or discipline in the humanities or outside the humanities provided humanities sources are central to the course.
NEH Enduring Questions grants can provide up to $25,000 in outright funds for projects serving a single institution.Recipients may begin their grants as early as May 1, 2012, but must begin no later than January 1, 2013. A letter (from the president, provost, dean, program chair, or department chair at the institution at which the course will be taught) MUST certify 1) that the institution supports the proposed course; 2) that the course is new; and 3) that during the grant period it will be offered at least twice by each faculty member involved in developing it. Ideally, this letter would also explain the importance of the course within the institution's overall curriculum. Applications for NEH Enduring Questions grants must be received by Grants.gov by 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time on September 15, 2011.
