I invite Pedagogical Grammar teachers to use a new website:
http://www.siu.edu/~cesl/teachers/pg/pdgra.html which is an attempt
to give PG teachers feedback from the classroom about skills that new
teachers will need. Please read, comment & contribute.

Message 2: NEH Fellowships Deadline Announcement

Date: Thu, 21 Jan 1999 08:10:11 -0500
From: Aikin, Jane <JAikinneh.gov>
Subject: NEH Fellowships Deadline Announcement

 NEH Fellowships, 2000-2001

 Deadline: May 1, 1999

 The National Endowment for the Humanities announces the competition for
 2000-2001 NEH Fellowships. These Fellowships provide opportunities for
 individuals to pursue advanced research in the humanities. Applicants may
 be faculty members of colleges and universities, staff members of colleges
 and universities, or faculty and staff members of primary and secondary
 schools. Scholars and writers working independently or in institutions
 such as museums, libraries, and historical associations, or in
 institutions with no connection to the humanities, also are eligible to
 apply.

 Projects supported by NEH Fellowships may contribute to scholarly
 knowledge or to the general public's understanding of the humanities.
 Such work might eventually produce scholarly articles; a monograph on a
 specialized subject; a site report; a translation, an edition, or a
 database; or another scholarly tool.

 CITIZENSHIP: Applicants should be U.S. citizens, native residents of U.S.
 jurisdictions, or foreign nationals who have been legal residents in the
 U.S. or its jurisdictions for at least three years immediately preceding
 the application deadline.

 ELIGIBILITY: Scholars affiliated with institutions granting the Ph.D. in
 the subject area of the project should apply to the Fellowships for
 University Teachers Program. Scholars affiliated with institutions not
 granting the Ph.D. in the subject area of the project should apply to the
 Fellowships for College Teachers and Independent Scholars Program.
 Applicants whose professional training includes a degree program must have
 received their degrees or completed all official requirements for them by
 the application deadline. Persons seeking support for work leading toward
 a degree are not eligible to apply, nor are active candidates for degrees.
 Further information on the two programs is available in the printed
 guidelines and on the Endowment's web site: <http://www.neh.gov>; 

 TENURE AND STIPENDS: Tenure must cover an uninterrupted period of from
 six to twelve months. The earliest beginning date is January 1, 2000, and
 the latest is the start of the spring term of the 2000-2001 academic term,
 or April 1, 2001 for those who are not teachers. Tenure periods for
 teachers must include at least one complete term of the academic year. A
 stipend of $30,000 will be awarded to those holding fellowships for a
 grant period of nine to twelve months. A stipend of $24,000 will be
 awarded to those holding fellowships for a grant period of six to
 eight months.

 SUBMISSION OF APPLICATION: All applications must be postmarked on or
 before May 1, 1999. Please note that the Endowment does not accept
 applications submitted by fax or e-mail. Applicants will be notified of
 the decisions on their applications by mid-December 1999.
