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.

From the NEH website:
Summer Stipends grants support individuals pursuing advanced research that is of value to humanities scholars, general audiences, or both. Eligible projects usually result in articles, monographs, books, digital materials and publications, archaeological site reports, translations, or editions. Projects must not result solely in the collection of data; instead, they must also incorporate analysis and interpretation.

Summer Stipends grants support continuous full-time work on a humanities project for a period of two consecutive months. The grants support projects at any stage of development.

This award is for individual scholars who have been nominated by their institutions. Fordham may nominate only two faculty members for this award.

  • If you want to be considered for this opportunity, please submit a three-page, single-spaced description of your proposed project, a one-page bibliography, and a two-page cv to Beth by the date above.
  • Follow the instructions for the narrative on pages 9-11 of the guidelines:

Your proposal will be reviewed by the internal Fordham Summer Stipends committee. Nominations 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
