Monthly Training Series
This fall, we will be starting a monthly training series. If you have any ideas for topics related to
grant-writing, agency information or successful grant funded projects, please let us know and
we will do our best to get them on the agenda for the next academic year! Also, think about
your research and scholarly interests and what you would like to get funded in the future. Let us
Have a great summer!!
National Endowment for the Humanities - Summer Stipends
Due: September 30
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. NEH encourages submission of
Summer Stipends applications from faculty at Historically Black Colleges and Universities, Institutions
with High Hispanic Enrollment, and Tribal Colleges and Universities. 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

Bridging Cultures Through Film: International Topics
Due: July 28, 2010
The Bridging Cultures through Film: International Topics program supports projects that examine
international and transnational themes in the humanities through documentary films.
These projects are meant to spark Americans’ engagement with the broader world by exploring
one or more countries and cultures outside of the United States. Proposed documentaries must
be analytical and deeply grounded in humanities scholarship. The Division of Public Programs
encourages the exploration of innovative nonfiction storytelling that presents multiple points
of view in creative formats. The proposed film must range in length from a stand-alone broadcast
hour to a feature-length documentary. We invite a wide range of approaches to international
and transnational topics and themes, such as an examination of a critical issue in ethics,
religion, or history, viewed through an international lens; a biography of a foreign leader,
writer, artist, or historical figure; or an exploration of the history and culture(s) of a specific
region, country, or community outside of the United States.
