UC Davis has been invited to submit two nominees to the National Endowment for the Humanities 2022-2023 Summer Stipends competition. The NEH Summer Stipends program aims to stimulate new research in the humanities and its publications by supporting the work of individual scholars doing research or writing. Anyone can apply, as long as they are not a degree candidate at time of application. A Summer Stipend award provides a total of $6,000 for two months of full-time research and writing conducted in summer 2022. Junior faculty are particularly encouraged to apply. Graduate students are ineligible for this award.

While the NEH deadline for this year’s competition is September 21, 2022, UC Davis will conduct an internal competition, as in the past, to select its two campus nominees from among its faculty. The deadline for the internal UC Davis proposals is July 1, 2022. Please note that  non-tenured faculty, adjunct faculty, staff, retired faculty, community college faculty, and independent scholars are exempt from nomination and may apply independently. 

NEH Summer Stipend nominees must have completed their formal education and be U.S. citizens or foreign nationals who have been living in the United States or its jurisdictions for at least the three years immediately preceding the application deadline. Applicants may submit only one application to the Summer Stipends program per year. Please carefully review the Notice of Funding Opportunity for all eligibility guidelines and information before submitting your proposal. 

Internal Application Elements:

  1. Project Description (not to exceed three single-spaced pages formatted with one-inch margins and a font size no smaller than eleven point.)
  2. Bibliography (not to exceed one single-spaced page).
  3. A short C.V. (not to exceed two pages).

Submit internal applications as a single pdf file at by 5 p.m. on Friday, July 1, 2022. Proposals are reviewed by senior faculty in the humanities and humanistic social sciences. Campus nominees will be notified of their selection by late August and are invited to work with the DHI Associate Director to refine their proposal for submission by the NEH deadline of September 21, 2022.
