Applying for the 2013 NEH Summer Stipend

June 20, 2012
To Faculty Working in the Humanities:

We encourage you to apply for the 2013 NEH Summer Stipend, which provides $6,000 for two consecutive months of full-time research and writing. Each university is allowed to nominate two faculty members. Projects at any stage of development are eligible for consideration.

To apply, please send a preliminary two-page proposal draft and one-page vita to before July 31.

Assuming a non-specialist audience, please state clearly what the project is and specifically address these criteria, which the national selection committee would use in its review:
  • How the project will be carried out;
  • Timeline;
  • How this will address not only specialists but also a larger, more general humanities audience;
  • How, specifically, the funding will be used.

A nominating panel will convene in early August to determine our nominees. Those applications are then accepted by NEH through their final deadline, generally September 30.

For more information or to see sample applications, please see and follow “grants – guidelines – summer stipends.”
