Internal Deadline for preliminary proposals:  Monday, September 12, 2016

The NEH Summer Stipend program has been announced for Summer 2017. NEH summer Stipends provide $6,000 for two consecutive, uninterrupted months of full-time independent study, research and writing that will make a significant contribution in the humanities.  All applicants with college or university affiliations must be nominated by their institution. All U.S. citizens, whether they reside inside or outside the United States, are eligible to apply. Foreign nationals who have been living in the United States or its jurisdictions for at least the three years immediately preceding the application deadline are also eligible.

Augustana is allowed to nominate up to two faculty members. Because it is possible that we may receive more than two internal applications, our deadline for the preliminary proposal will be Monday, September 12 for external review prior to nomination. We do request, however, that you let us know as early as possible if you are planning to submit a proposal. Notification of the two proposals selected to be submitted to the NEH will occur no later than September 19. The two faculty members selected will then be able to consider the reviewer comments and revise as they feel necessary for the September 29, 2016 submission deadline. Full information can be found at submit proposals to Mary Koski in Academic Affairs.
