UNI Nomination Process:
Full-time faculty who plan to submit applications for the National Endowment for the Humanities’ Summer Stipend Program must participate in an internal competition for the two University nominations available.
The deadline to compete for the internal nomination is 5 PM Sept. 10, 2012.
E-mail or send applications to OSP Grant Specialist Hillery Oberle at firstname.lastname@example.org or mail code “0394”.
Applications should be consistent with NEH guidelines and must include:
- three-page narrative
- one-page bibliography
- two-page resume
- any samples, if required
Applications will be reviewed by a Humanities Review Committee composed of faculty members from colleges that include humanities-related fields.
The Committee will first examine which applications best address the areas requested in the NEH Program Announcement for the project narrative and then select nominees based on the five review criteria specified in the program announcement. For further details, please visit NEH Summer Stipend Guidelines.
Nomination will be announced Sept. 18, 2012. The Committee’s comments on all proposals will be shared and may be used by nominees in final revisions before the NEH electronic due date of Sept. 27, 2012. Note, OSP recommends beginning the electronic submission process a day or so prior to the actual due date.
