Humanities Research Grants Available for Faculty and Staff at Hispanic-Serving Institutions

The NEH Awards for Faculty program seeks to strengthen the humanities at Hispanic-Serving Institutions by encouraging and expanding humanities research opportunities for individual faculty and staff members. Awards support individuals pursuing scholarly research that is of value to humanities scholars, students, and/or general audiences.

The next application deadline is April 14, 2021, for projects beginning in 2022 and 2023.  Staff will once again be accepting draft narratives (optional), which are due February 17, 2021.

The program offers applicants flexibility in project types and award periods. Common to all projects must be humanities research. Eligible projects include humanities research in primary and secondary materials leading to the development of books, monographs, peer-reviewed articles, e-books, digital materials, translations with annotations or a critical apparatus, critical editions, or other scholarly resources; humanities research related to institutional or community goals or interests, such as projects that draw on institutional or community archival collections; and humanities research leading to the improvement of an existing undergraduate course. For complete details, please see the Notice of Funding Opportunity.
The program is open to all faculty and staff members, including full-time, part-time, adjunct, and retired faculty and staff at Hispanic-Serving Institutions.

The awards support the equivalent of two to twelve months of full-time work and carry a stipend of $5,000 per month (full-time equivalent).

For a detailed program description, sample narratives, and the Notice of Funding Opportunity, please see the NEH website.
