  • My application won’t get funded because NEH doesn’t fund new approaches or work in my field

  • Only senior scholars get funded

  • It’s too early


Spell-Checker may well continue to work together. These joint calls-for-proposals serve as a motivator and stamp of approval for international collaboration

Eye halve a spelling chequer;

It came with my pea sea.

It plainly marques four my revue;

Miss steaks eye kin knot sea.

Eye strike a key and type a word;

And weight four it two say.

Weather eye am wrong oar write,

It shows me strait a weigh.

As soon as a mist ache is maid,

It nose bee fore two long.

And eye can put the error rite,

Its rare lea ever wrong.

Eye have run this poem threw it;

I am shore your pleased two no.

Its letter perfect awl the weigh;

My chequer tolled me sew.
