Info-Meeting on NEH Fellowships/Stipends 4/23 noon

Next Friday 4/23, between 12-1:30 pm in the McKenzie Collaboration Center (175 McKenzie Hall), Robert Long will hold an informational meeting about NEH Fellowships and Summer Stipends. The NEH Fellowships deadline comes up soon (5/4/10), while UO’s internal deadline for the Summer Stipends will be 8/2/10 (to select 2 nominees for the NEH deadline of 9/30/10).

UO faculty are invited to  come with their questions, their concerns, their own NEH grant-writing experiences.

The following resources will be made available to attendees:

  • recent successful UO faculty proposals for Fellowships and Summer Stipends;
  • some UO faculty (in person) who wrote a successful proposal;
  • figures for UO Fellows/Stipendees from 1979-2010;
  • info on UO’s participation in other NEH divisions/programs;
  • a self-guided proposal-writing packet based on the NEH Fellowship application.

Though you might expect a federal agency with “Humanities” in its title might confine Fellowships and Summer Stipends to traditional humanities faculty, UO NEH recipients during the past 30 years have included faculty from the social sciences, arts, and professional schools–Anthropology, Architecture, Art History, Geography, History, Journalism, Law, Music and Political Science.

(Not that UO’s humanities departments and programs haven’t been well-represented: Comparative Literature, East Asian Languages and Literature, English, German/Scandinavian, Linguistics, Medieval Studies, Philosophy, Religious Studies, Romance Languages , and Russian/East European Studies.)

Are there other NEH-related matters you would like to see addressed at this meeting, or at subsequent informational roundtables sponsored by Research and Faculty Development? Or are you working on a proposal for a Fellowship or Summer Stipend, and would like some critical feedback? Contact Robert Long (rohilong[at]uoregon[dot]edu, 541.2346.2293).
