Limited Submission Opportunities

On occasion, a funding opportunity will arise that is limited to just one or two proposals from each institution. In that case, an internal competition is necessary to pick the most promising applications. Please contact Kris Wolff, Director, Office of Sponsored Programs, to express interest in these opportunities at or 718-817-4086.

Current List of Opportunities

NEH - Summer Stipends
Internal Competition Deadline: Tuesday, September 3, 2019 at 5pm
Sponsor Deadline: September 25, 2019 at 11:59pm

From the NEH Website:
The National Endowment for the Humanities’ Summer Stipends program aims to stimulate new research in the humanities and its publication. The program works to accomplish this goal by:
 • Providing small awards ($6,000) to individuals pursuing advanced research that is of value to humanities scholars, general audiences, or both.
 • Supporting projects at any stage of development, but most especially early-stage research and late-stage writing in which small awards are most effective. 

Summer Stipends support continuous full-time work on a humanities project for a period of two consecutive months. NEH funds may support recipients' compensation, travel, and other costs related to the proposed scholarly research.

The NEH Summer Stipends website has several sample funded proposals. Potential applicants should read these for the style, content, and format of past grantees.

The award is for individual scholars who have been nominated by their institution. Fordham may nominate only two faculty members.

If you want to be considered for this limited submission, please submit a 3-page, single-spaced project narrative, a 1-page bibliography, and 2-page CV to Beth Torres at by the date above. Instructions for writing the 3-page narrative begin on page 13 of the RFP: NEH Summer Stipends.

Your proposal will be reviewed by the internal Fordham Summer Stipends committee. Notifications will be made in time for nominees to polish their proposals before the NEH's deadline.

If you have any questions, please contact Beth Torres, Grants Officer, at 718-817-0861 or
