The National Endowment for the Humanities announces the competition for
Fellowships for 2002-2003. These Fellowships provide opportunities for
individuals to pursue advanced research in the humanities. Applicants may be faculty or staff members of colleges or universities or of primary or secondary schools. Scholars and writers working independently, in institutions such as museums, libraries, and historical associations, or in institutions with no connection to the humanities, also are eligible to apply.
NEH Fellowships support a variety of activities. Projects may contribute to scholarly knowledge, to the advancement of teaching, or to the general public understanding of the humanities. Award recipients might eventually produce scholarly articles, a book-length treatment of a broad topic, an archaeological site report, a translation, an edition, a database, or some other scholarly tool.
CITIZENSHIP: Applicants should be U.S. citizens, native residents of U.S. jurisdictions, or foreign nationals who have been legal residents in the U.S. or its jurisdictions for at least three years immediately preceding the application deadline.
ELIGIBILITY: Applicants whose professional training includes a degree
program must have received the degree or completed all requirements for it by the application deadline. Persons seeking support for work leading to a degree are not eligible to apply, nor are active candidates for degrees. Further information is available in the printed guidelines on the Endowment's web site:
TENURE AND STIPENDS: Tenure must cover an uninterrupted period of from six to twelve months. The earliest beginning date is January 1, 2002, and the latest is the start of the spring term of the 2002-2003 academic term, or April 1, 2003 for those who are not on an academic year schedule. Tenure periods for teachers must include at least one complete term of the academic year. A stipend of $40,000 will be awarded to those holding fellowships for a grant period of nine months to twelve months.
