National Endowment for the Humanities Fellowship

National Endowment for the Humanities

Job type: fellowship

Application deadline: March 3, 2015


The National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) has announced a new grant opportunity that encourages the publication of nonfiction books that apply serious humanities scholarship to subjects of general interest and appeal.

The fellowship offers a stipend of $4,200 per month for a period of six to twelve months. The maximum stipend is $50,400 for a twelve-month period. Applicants must have previously published a book or monograph with a university or commercial press, or articles and essays that reach a wide readership.

This program is not for specialized scholarship in a particular field, as are normal NEH fellowships, but for scholars who can “translate” their knowledge into a book with appeal to a broad, public audience.
