NEH Teaching Development Fellowships: September 30

The National Endowment for the Humanities will award Teaching Development Fellowships to support college and university teachers pursuing research aimed specifically at improving an existing undergraduate course that has been taught in at least THREE different terms prior to the application deadline. The research undertaken as a part of the project may involve engaging with fundamental texts or sources, exploring related subjects or academic disciplines, or cultivating neglected areas of learning.

The program has three broad goals:
  1. to improve the quality of humanities education in the United States;
  2. to strengthen the link between research and teaching in the humanities; and
  3. to foster excellence in undergraduate instruction. Research in any area of the humanities is welcome.
Teaching Development Fellowships cover periods lasting from three to five months and carry stipends of $4,200 per month. Thus the maximum stipend is $21,000 for a five-month award period.

The application deadline is September 30, 2010.

For more information and instructions, please see the grant guidelines.
