NEH Summer Stipend Program

Description of NEH Summer Stipend Program

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.

GSU Internal Process for Participation in the NEH Summer Stipend Program
The National Endowment of the Humanities only permits each institution to submit two applications to their summer stipend program.  An internal review committee (made up of former NEH grant recipients) will review the pre-applications and select two finalists who will represent Georgia State in this year's award competition.
