National Endowment for the Humanities Fellowships 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.

Fellowships cover periods lasting from six to twelve months at a stipend of $4,200 per month in outright funds. The maximum stipend is $50,400 in outright funds for a twelve-month period. Applicants should request award periods that suit their schedules and the needs of their projects. Requesting an award period shorter than twelve months will not improve an applicant’s chances of receiving a fellowship.

Recipients may begin their awards as early as January 1, 2011, and as late as July 1, 2012. The award period must be continuous, and award recipients must work full time on their projects.

Applications must be submitted online, and include

  • Narrative (maximum three single-spaced pages)
  • Bibliography (maximum one single-spaced page)
  • Résumé (maximum two single-spaced pages)
  • Two letters of reference
Deadline: May 4, 2010
