Description of Program Fellowships support individuals pursuing advanced research in the humanities that contributes to scholarly knowledge or to the general public's understanding of the humanities. Applicants may be faculty or staff members of colleges or universities, or of primary or secondary schools, or independent scholars or writers. Fellowships provide support for projects that can be completed during the tenure of the award, as well as for work that is part of a long-term endeavor. Recipients usually produce scholarly articles, monographs on specialized subjects, books on broad topics, archaeological site reports, translations, editions, or other scholarly tools.

    Other Restrictions The Fellowships program accepts applications from researchers, teachers, and writers, whether they have an institutional affiliation or not. They must be U.S. citizens, native residents of U.S. jurisdictions, or foreign nationals who have resided in the United States or its jurisdictions for at least three years immediately preceding the application deadline. NEH Fellowships and Summer Stipends do not support projects to study teaching methods or theories. Neither do they support surveys of courses and programs or the preparation of institutional curricula. Applicants need not have advanced degrees, but only scholars who have completed their formal academic training are eligible to apply. If an applicant has completed all of the official requirements for the degree and is awaiting only the formal award, certification that all requirements have been met by the application deadline must be submitted by the dean of the school awarding the degree. A person seeking funding for a project that has previously received NEH Fellowships support is eligible. Panelists will be asked whether the applicant's record indicates that the previous grant was put to good use and whether the project warrants a second NEH Fellowship.

    Selection Process/Criteria Proposals are assessed by knowledgeable persons outside NEH who represent a broad range of disciplines and expertise. Their assessments go to the National Council on the Humanities, a group of Presidentially appointed persons who make recommendations for awards to the Endowment's Chairman, who in turn has final grant-making authority. The following criteria will be used in evaluating applications for Fellowships and Summer Stipends: (1)the significance of the contribution that the project will make to knowledge in the specific field and to the humanities generally; (2) the quality or the promise of quality of the applicant's work as an interpreter of the humanities; (3)the quality of the conception, definition, organization, and description of the project; and (4) the likelihood that the applicant will complete the project.
    Notification Process An applicant should expect to wait seven to eight months after the deadline to hear a decision.
