This program strengthens the humanities at Historically Black Colleges and Universities 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 program welcomes proposals in all areas of the humanities, regardless of geographic or chronological focus. This program offers applicants flexibility in project outcomes and award periods. Projects must be based on humanities research. Eligible projects include:
- 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
- research related to institutional or community goals or interests, such as projects that draw on archival collections, collection and interpretation of oral histories, or the development of materials in support of culture or language preservation and revitalization
- research leading to the improvement of a single existing undergraduate course, including the development of humanities resources (for example, oral histories, identification and preparation of previously unavailable archival sources, or newly compiled historical or literary collections)
- research leading to digital or web-based products intended to supplement a course revision or publication project
The amount of the monthly stipend is $5,000 per full-time month (or part-time equivalent). The maximum award is $60,000 for the equivalent of twelve full-time months. The minimum award is $10,000, corresponding to the equivalent of two months of full-time work. Thus, an award to support 14 months of half-time work would be $35,000 (equivalent to 7 months of full-time work.)
NEH anticipates approximately $1,200,000 to fund approximately 22 recipients across the three Award for Faculty programs per deadline.
