• Successful applicants receive an outright award of $6,000 for two consecutive months of full-time research and
• Summer Stipends support individuals pursuing advanced research that is of value to humanities
scholars, general audiences, or both.
• Recipients usually produce articles, monographs, books, digital materials, archaeological site reports, translations,
editions, or other scholarly resources.
• Summer Stipends support full-time work on a humanities project for a period of two months.
• Summer Stipends support projects at any stage of development.
• Summer Stipends are awarded to individual scholars. Organizations are not eligible to apply.
The Summer Stipends program welcomes projects that respond to NEH’s new Bridging Cultures initiative. Such projects
could focus on cultures internationally or within the United States. International projects might seek to enlarge
Americans’ understanding of other places and times, as well as other perspectives and intellectual traditions. American
projects might explore the great variety of cultural influences on, and myriad subcultures within, American society.
These projects might also investigate how Americans have approached and attempted to surmount seemingly unbridgeable
cultural divides, or examine the ideals of civility and civic discourse that have informed this quest.
