The National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) Summer Stipends
support individuals pursuing advanced research that is of value to
humanities scholars, general audiences, or both. Research typically
results in articles, monographs, books, digital materials, archaeological
site reports, translations, editions, or other scholarly resources. Summer
Stipends support continuous full-time work on a humanities project for a
period of two months.

An outright award of $6,000 is provided for two consecutive months of
full-time research and writing. In accordance with NEH guidelines, Ball
State may nominate two faculty proposals.

Ball State internal application deadline is August 28, 2014.

Deadline for final submission to the NEH is September 30, 2014 for projects beginning May 2015.
