Closing Date: May 1,2012.

Fellowships 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 in the humanities. Projects may be at any stage of development.
NEH encourages submission of Fellowships applications from faculty at Hispanic-Serving Institutions, Historically Black Colleges and Universities, and Tribal Colleges and Universities.
Fellowships may not be used for
  • projects that seek to promote a particular political, religious, or ideological point of view;
  • projects that advocate a particular program of social action;
  • specific policy studies;
  • research for doctoral dissertations or theses by students enrolled in a degree program;
  • the preparation or revision of textbooks;
  • curriculum development;
  • the development of pedagogical tools (including teaching methods or theories);
  • educational or technical impact assessments;
  • the creation or enhancement of databases, unless part of a larger interpretive project;
  • empirical social science research, unless part of a larger humanities project;
  • inventories of collections;
  • works in the creative and performing arts (for example, painting, writing fiction or poetry, dance performance, etc.);
  • the writing of autobiographies and memoirs; or
  • the writing of guide books, how-to books, and self-help books.

Fellowships cover periods lasting from six to twelve months at a stipend of $4,200 per month. The maximum stipend is $50,400 for a twelve-month period. Applicants should request award periods that suit their schedules and the needs of their projects. Requesting an award period shorter than twelve months will not improve an applicant’s chances of receiving a fellowship.

Recipients may begin their awards as early as January 1, 2013, and as late as September 1, 2014.

The award period must be full-time and continuous. Teaching and administrative assignments or other major activities may not be undertaken during the fellowship period.
