Guidelines for the Fellowships grant program are now available. The deadline for applications is May 1, 2013, for projects beginning in or after January 2014. Applicants will be notified of the decision in December 2013.
Fellowships support continuous full-time work for a period of six to twelve months, and are awarded to 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 in the humanities. Projects may be at any stage of development.
As always, all applicants must submit their proposals at Grants.gov, the central federal government portal for all grant applications. NEH suggests that you submit your application as early as possible, but not later than 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time on the day of the deadline. Doing so will leave you time to contact the Grants.gov help desk for support, should you encounter a technical problem of some kind. We strongly recommend that you complete or verify your registration with Grants.gov at least two weeks before the application deadline, as it takes time for your registration to be processed.
Please read the application early and carefully. Samples of successful applications are available for your reference on the grant page.
