The NEH Summer Stipend program has been announced for 2015. Our internal deadline for preliminary proposals is Monday, September 15th, 2014.NEH Summer Stipends provide $6,000 for two consecutive, uninterrupted months of full-time independent study, research and writing that will make a significant contribution in the humanities. All applicants with college or university affiliations must be nominated by their institution. All 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.
We are allowed to nominate up to two faculty members. Because it is possible that we may receive more than two internal applications, our deadline for the preliminary proposals will be Monday, September 15 for internal review prior to nomination. We do request, however, that you let us know as early as possible if you are planning to submit a proposal. Notification of the two proposals selected to be submitted to the NEH will occur no later than September 20. The two faculty members selected will then be able to consider the internal review committee's comments and revise as they feel necessary for the September 30, 2014 submission deadline.
Please submit the following to MaryKoski@augustana.edu, no later than September 15th if you would like to apply for the NEH Summer Stipend Program:
1. Resume, not to exceed two single-spaced pages;
2. Detailed description of the proposed study, not to exceed three single-spaced pages; i.e., a draft of your NEH proposal;
3. Bibliography for the project, not to exceed one single-spaced page; and
4. Names and titles of the two people who would be writing references.
