NEH Summer Stipends


National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) Summer Stipends aid scholars conducting humanities research toward the production of articles, monographs, books, digital materials, archaeological site reports, translations, or editions, etc. The stipends provide $6,000 for two consecutive, uninterrupted months of full-time research and writing.

The USM Office of the Provost will supplement an awarded NEH stipend with a variable sum which in combination with the NEH stipend equals the awardee's established summer teaching salary as determined by faculty rank.

  • Limited Submission:
    NEH allows each university two (2) nominations. To facilitate nominee selection, ORA will conduct an internal competition, and the Provost will appoint a committee to review applications and recommend nominees for submission.
  • To Be Considered:
    Prepare and submit an application package to Southern Miss Office of Research Administration (ORA) by the submission deadline. Late applications cannot be accepted. Detailed application elements and proposal guidelines are posted on ORA's Competition ⇄ Review Nexus page.
