1. National Endowment for the Humanities – Summer Stipends


National Endowment for the Humanities – Summer Stipends: Summer Stipends support individuals pursuing advanced research that is of value to humanities scholars, general audiences, or both. Eligible projects usually result in articles, monographs, books, digital materials and publications, archaeological site reports, translations, or editions. Projects must not result solely in the collection of data; instead they must also incorporate analysis and interpretation. Summer Stipends support continuous full-time work on a humanities project for a period of two consecutive months. UIC is limited to two full time faculty member nominations. UIC faculty who wish to submit to this program must complete and submit an internal LOI form. For more information see
