|Title: NEH Summer Stipends|
|Internal (USM) Deadline: 5:00 pm Tuesday, September 16, 2014|
|Sponsor: National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH)|
Program Summary: NEH Summer Stipends support humanities research that contributes to scholarly knowledge or the public's understanding of the humanities. The stipends provide $6,000 to selected individuals for two consecutive, uninterrupted summer months of full-time* independent study and research.
The Office of the Provost at Southern Miss will supplement an awarded NEH stipend with a variable sum that, in combination with the NEH stipend, equals the awardee’s established summer teaching salary as determined by faculty rank. Faculty of all ranks may compete, and new faculty are encouraged to participate.
*Note: The stipends are intended to enable awardees to conduct research instead of teaching (or engaging in other paid work). Teaching during the two-month award period would be a violation of federal regulations.
