National Endowment for the Humanities Summer Stipend

It's that time again! The National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) is offering summer stipends to support individuals pursuing advanced, full-time research on a humanities project. An outright award of $6,000 is provided for two consecutive months of full-time research and writing that must be of value to humanities scholars, general audiences or both. Research typically results in articles, monographs, books, digital materials, archaeological site reports, translations, editions, or other scholarly resources. In accordance with NEH guidelines, Ball State may nominate two faculty proposals.
