New stipend initiative l.jpg

“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.”

“Projects might also investigate

how Americans have approached and attempted to surmount seemingly unbridgeable cultural divides

Projects might examine the ideals of civility and civic discourse that have informed this quest.”

Stipend Facts


Rules and regulations l.jpg

Rules and Regulations

  • University-affiliated scholars enter the university’s internal competition

  • University selects two scholars as its candidates in the national competition

  • The NEH Chairperson selects the awardees based on recommendations from the Peer Review Reading Committees

  • Prior winners may compete again after a five-year hiatus from their last Stipend award

  • The award is to the scholar, not the university


Final product and dissemination l.jpg

Final Product and Dissemination

  • NEH intends that the awards it makes results in work that finds “the broadest possible audience”

  • To attain that goal, NEH expects scholars, educators, students, and the public to find that NEH grant products area readily accessible

  • NEH requires that the Summer Stipends awards meet this goal

  • Scholars’ projects may result in the creation of digital resources, such as websites, and especially those that are free to the public.

  • Detailed guidance on access and dissemination matters can be found in Section IV of the Summer Stipend Guidelines,
