NEH Summer Stipends

The National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) Summer Stipends Program is an opportunity for faculty in the humanities to receive a stipend to carry out research over a two-month period during the summer. Awardees receive $6,000 for two consecutive summer months of full-time research and writing.

Faculty who are neither tenured nor on a tenure-track may apply DIRECTLY to the NEH for this prestigious fellowship and do not need to follow the procedure below. The link to the program is above.

Tenured and tenure-track faculty must be nominated by NYU. A faculty committee will select two candidates for nomination. These candidates may then apply to the NEH. The Center for the Humanities manages the screening process for tenured and tenure-track faculty.

Tenured or tenure-track faculty should submit the following to be considered for nomination:

  • A short CV (no more than 2 pages)
  • A project proposal (no more than 2 pages)

A budget is not required. Submissions are due July 11, 2021.

The two NYU finalists will be notified by the Center around mid-August and their full proposals must be submitted directly to the NEH by September 22, 2021 for consideration.
