Limit on Proposals

The NEH stipulates that faculty members teaching full-time at colleges or universities must be nominated by their institutions to apply for a Summer Stipend. Each college and university may nominate TWO faculty members. Therefore, an internal competition will be held to screen the proposals going forward to the agency.

Pre-proposals to be submitted:

An internal committee will review and pass on recommendations to the VPR. The VPR will make the final selection of proposals to be submitted. Selected PI’s will be notified by September 13th.
