 Summer Stipends provide support for faculty and staff
 members in universities and two-year, four-year, and
 five-year colleges, and for independent scholars and others
 working in the humanities to pursue two consecutive months
 of full-time independent study and research. An applicant's
 project may be one that can be completed during the stipend
 period, or it may be part of a long-range endeavor.

 Academic applicants must be nominated by their institution.
 Each college and university in the United States and its
 jurisdictions may nominate three members of its faculty and
 staff for the Summer Stipends competition. No more than two
 of the nominees should be in the early stages of their
 careers, that is, junior nominees; no more than two should
 be at a more advanced stage, that is, senior nominees. In
 the Summer Stipends program, academic applicants who hold
 the rank instructor or assistant professor or who are at
 comparatively early stages of their careers are considered
 to be junior nominees. Those holding the rank of associate
 professor or professor are considered to be senior nominees.
 Prospective applicants from academic institutions should
 become familiar with their institution's nomination
 procedures well in advance of the NEH application deadline.
 Non-faculty college and university staff who will not be
 teaching during the academic year in which the NEH
 application deadline occurs and academic applicants with
 appointments terminating by the summer following the NEH
 application deadline may apply without nomination.
 Independent scholars are eligible to apply without

 Recipients of previous stipends and major fellowships are
 subject to certain eligibility rules and should consult the
 program guidelines.

 Summer Stipends recipients may not hold major fellowships or
 grants during the tenure of their awards. Summer Stipends
 normally support work carried out during the summer months,
 but arrangements can be made for holding tenure for other
 times of the year. The stipend award for projects not
 requiring travel is $4,000. For projects that require
 travel of a significant distance to an appropriate research
 collection, library, museum, or archive within the United
 States or abroad, the stipend is $4,750.
