Grants of up to $60,000 to USA educators and staff members at eligible IHEs in multiples states for humanities-based activities. Funding is intended to support a wide range of research projects, publications, and scholarly activities related to the study of the humanities. Eligible projects are conducted at Tribal colleges and universities, include pursuing research in primary and secondary materials and producing articles, monographs, books, digital materials, archaeological site reports, translations, or other scholarly resources. Projects may be at any stage of development.

Awards support individuals pursuing scholarly research that is of value to humanities scholars, students, and/or general audiences. The program offers applicants flexibility in project types and award periods. Eligible projects include:

  • Humanities research in primary and secondary materials leading to the development of books, monographs, peer-reviewed articles, e-books, digital materials, translations with annotations or a critical apparatus, critical editions, or other scholarly resources
  • Humanities research related to institutional or community goals or interests, such as projects that draw on institutional or community archival collections, or the development of materials in support of culture or language preservation and revitalization
  • Humanities research leading to the improvement of an existing undergraduate course, including the development of humanities resources (for example, oral histories, identification of previously unavailable primary sources, historical or literary collections).

NEH is especially interested in supporting projects that advance humanities-related work in the following areas.

  • “A More Perfect Union”: NEH Special Initiative Advancing Civic Education and Commemorating the Nation’s 250th Anniversary
  • Protecting Our Cultural Heritage

GrantWatch ID#: 151093

Estimated Size of Grant:

The amount of the award is $5,000 per full-time month. Thus, an award to support eight months of half-time work would be $20,000 (equivalent to four months of full-time work at $5,000 per month). The maximum award is $60,000 for the equivalent of twelve full-time months.

Term of Contract:

The project period is 2 - 12 months of full-time work. Applicants may work between half time and full time on a project, or in combination, starting as early as January 1, 2021.

The period of performance may begin as soon as January 1, 2021 and as late as September 1, 2022.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

The program is open to all faculty and staff members, including full time, part time, adjunct, and retired faculty and staff at Tribal Colleges and Universities. Awards support individuals who work between half time and full time on their projects.

All US citizens who teach at, serve on the staff of, or have retired from Tribal Colleges and Universities are eligible to apply.

Foreign nationals who take up permanent residence outside the United States any time between the application deadline and the end of the period of performance will forfeit their eligibility to hold an award. (Leaving the U.S. on a temporary basis is permitted.)

While applicants need not have advanced degrees, individuals currently enrolled in a degree-granting program are ineligible to apply. Applicants who have satisfied all the requirements for a degree and are awaiting its conferral are eligible for NEH Awards for Faculty. Such applicants must include a letter from the dean of the conferring school or their department chair attesting to the applicant’s status as of April 8, 2020.

Applicants may not apply for funding for a project previously supported by an NEH Fellowship, an NEH-Mellon Fellowship for Digital Publication, a Public Scholars award, or an Award for Faculty. Applicants may, however, apply for funding for a project previously supported by a two-month NEH Summer Stipend.
