MICA's Office of Research invites full-time faculty to submit preliminary proposals for the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) Summer Stipends program.
NEH Summer Stipends support individuals pursuing advanced research that is of value to humanities scholars, general audiences, or both. Summer Stipends support continuous full-time work on a humanities project for a period of two consecutive months. Projects must begin their performance period between May 1, 2023 and September 1, 2024 to be eligible for this round. Successful applicants receive a stipend of up to $6,000. Eligible projects usually result in articles, monographs, books, digital materials and publications, archaeological site reports, translations, editions, or other scholarly resources.
The college may nominate up to two full-time faculty members based on preliminary proposal materials submitted through the application linked above. Proposals are due by July 1, 2022. Materials are then reviewed by the Associate Dean of Liberal Arts with support from the Grants Specialist for The Office of Research. Recommendations are submitted to the Director of Research who acts as the college’s nominating official. Nominees will be required to complete a full NEH Summer Stipend application at grants.gov by September 21, 2021.
The NEH will host a webinar on the Summer Stipends program Wednesday, May 18th, 2-3pm at this link.
NOTE: Part-time faculty members are eligible to apply for NEH Summer Stipends independently and do not require an institutional nomination.
