Applications due for 2010 NEH stipends

June 2, 2009

KALAMAZOO--Western Michigan University faculty have six weeks to prepare and submit proposals for a stipend through the National Endowment for the Humanities.

Proposals will be collected by WMU's college associate deans until Tuesday, July 14, for submission to the NEH 2010 Summer Stipend, a $6,000 award given to two faculty members for research during two summer months. A maximum of two applications are allowed per institution, and the full proposals will be taken by NEH between Aug. 1 and Oct. 1.

Submissions will be reviewed first by a WMU panel of peers and then by the associate deans. The more rigorous, two-step review aims to strengthen the quality of the submissions to the NEH.

If awarded the stipend, researchers will be expected to produce scholarly articles, monographs on specialized subjects, books on broad topics, archaeological site reports, translations, editions or other scholarly tools.

To apply, submit a two- to three-page page project narrative documenting the intended full-time work on the project for a period of two months, a two-page curriculum vitae, a one-page bibliography and any appendices.

Access to full application guidelines is available at www.neh.gov/grants/guidelines/stipends.html. For more information, contact Gina Betcher, research program officer, at gina.betcher@wmich.edu or (269) 387-8204.
