NEH Summer Stipends program (internal deadline June 17, 2019)

Once again, we are pleased to inform you an opportunity to compete for a submission to the NEH Summer Stipends program for support in Summer 2020. This NEH program supports individual researchers for scholarly work that is of value to humanities scholars and general audiences. Funded products include articles, monographs, books, digital materials, archaeological site reports, translations, editions, and other scholarly resources. You could receive support for continuous full-time work on a humanities project for a period of two consecutive months.

NEH Summer Stipends are awarded only to individual scholars who are nominated by the institution at which they are teaching full-time. We are limited to two nominees. We will select these two nominations based on your "pre-proposal" submitted internally to by Monday, June 17, 2019.  Each internal pre-proposal should consist of a project narrative (1 page) and a CV (no more than 2 pages).  An internal evaluation committee will be formed to evaluate those internal submissions. We will inform our decisions to the applicants by Monday, July 1, 2019. After that, the two selected applicants will submit their applications to NEH by the deadline of September 25, 2019. We will try to provide some mentoring for our selected applicants as in the past.

Further information about the NEH Summer Stipends program can be found  at You are also welcome to contact us at with any questions you may have about the process at GW for making our nominations.

The National Science Foundation (NSF) Division of Mathematical Sciences (DMS), in collaboration with the Division of Molecular and Cellular Biosciences (MCB), seeks to promote interdisciplinary research that enables novel mathematical and computational approaches that capture and explore the full range of mechanisms and biological variability needed to better understand biological systems behavior across multiple scales.

In March 2018, President Trump imposed a 25% duty on steel and a 10% duty on aluminum. Most countries are covered by these tariffs but some have negotiated quotas with the United States. National security tariffs are now looming for automobiles and auto parts, and section 232 investigations are underway for uranium and titanium sponge.
Two expert panels will examine: 
  • The arcane law and its limits as tested by litigation.
  • Proposed legislation to restrict the President’s authority.
  • The steel and aluminum tariffs and the product exclusion process, and how these have impacted US manufacturers and global supply chains.
  • The effect of such tariffs on the auto industry.
  • The impact on the negotiation of free trade agreements.
