NEH Summer Stipends

You are here

Summer Stipends provide $6,000 for two consecutive months of research and writing. Recipients must work full-time on their projects for these two months and may hold other research grants supporting the same project during this time. Summer Stipends normally support work carried out during the summer months, but arrangements can be made for other times of the year.

Eligible projects usually result in articles, monographs, books, digital materials and publications, archaeological site reports, translations, or editions. Projects must not result solely in the collection of data; instead they must also incorporate analysis and interpretation.

Faculty members teaching full-time at colleges or universities must be nominated by their institutions to apply for a Summer Stipend.  The Society for the Humanities serves as the nominating body for Cornell University.  Calls for applications are circulated each fall.
