Summer Stipends support individuals pursuing advanced research that is of value to humanities scholars, general audiences, or both. 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.
Summer Stipends support continuous full-time work on a humanities project for a period of two consecutive months. Summer Stipends support projects at any stage of development. Summer Stipends are awarded to individual scholars. Organizations are not eligible to apply. NEH encourages submission of Summer Stipends applications from independent scholars and faculty at Hispanic-Serving Institutions, Historically Black Colleges and Universities, and Tribal Colleges and Universities.
Summer Stipends may not be used for:
- projects that seek to promote a particular political, religious, or ideological point of view;
- projects that advocate a particular program of social action;
- specific policy studies;
- research for doctoral dissertations or theses by students enrolled in a degree program;
- the preparation or revision of textbooks;
- curriculum development;
- the development of teaching methods or theories;
- educational or technical impact assessments;
- empirical social science research, unless part of a larger humanities project;
- inventories of collections;
- works in the creative and performing arts (for example, painting, writing fiction or poetry, dance performance, etc.);
- the writing of autobiographies, memoirs, or works of creative nonfiction; or
- the writing of guide books, how-to books, and self-help books.
