(internal deadline extended to July 6, 2020)

Once again, we are pleased to inform you an opportunity to compete for a submission to the National Endowment for the Humanities Summer Stipends program for support in Summer 2021. 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, July 6, 2020.  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 applicants of our decisions by Friday, July 31, 2020. After that, the two selected applicants will submit their applications to NEH by the deadline of September 23, 2020. 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.
