NEH Fellowships: Deadline May 3, 2011

Fellowships 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 in the humanities. Projects may be at any stage of development.

Fellowships support continuous full-time work for a period of six to twelve months.

Fellowships may not be used for:

  • projects that seek to promote a particular political, religious, or ideological point of view;
  • projects that advocate a particular program of social action;
  • specific policy studies;
  • research for doctoral dissertations or theses by students enrolled in a degree program;
  • the preparation or revision of textbooks;
  • curriculum development;
  • the development of pedagogical tools (including teaching methods or theories);
  • educational or technical impact assessments;
  • the creation or enhancement of databases, unless part of a larger interpretive project;
  • empirical social science research, unless part of a larger humanities project;
  • inventories of collections; or
  • works in the creative and performing arts, i.e., painting, writing fiction or poetry, dance performance, etc.

While applicants need not have advanced degrees, individuals currently enrolled in a degree-granting program are ineligible to apply. Graduate students seeking support for a degree in the humanities should consider the Department of Education’s Jacob K. Javits Fellowship Program.
