Date: 03-May-2006 From: Leon Bramson <Lbramsonneh.gov> Subject: Humanities' Summer Stipends Program
Over the past five years, the National Endowment for the Humanities' Summer Stipends program has received an annual average of 866 applications and made an average of 116 awards, or 13%. We are now making plans for the October 2, 2006 deadline for the 2007 awards. Summer Stipends support full-time work on a humanities project for a period of two months. Applicants may be faculty or staff members of colleges, universities, or primary or secondary schools, or they may be independent scholars or writers. Individuals who are interested in obtaining copies of the guidelines and application instructions are invited to visit the NEH website at http://www.neh.gov/grants/guidelines/stipends.html
A list of previous awards for 2005 is available on the website. Click on "Frequently Asked Questions" for additional information concerning the application process and the program. Questions about the program can be sent via e-mail to stipendsneh.gov or via telephone: 202-606-8200.
