The NEH Summer Stipends competition is now open. The stipends provide $6,000 during summer 2020. Applications are due to OSU Friday, September 6, 2019.  OSU can nominate two faculty and will forward the supported applications to NEH by the September 25, 2019 deadline. Please follow this process:

1. Consult the national website and get the proper application information: The left column includes links to the guidelines as well as links to successful sample application narratives.

2. Submit a paper version of your application. This includes a 3-page narrative and a 2-page vita to the by Friday, September 6.

 Note: Although you need two letters of recommendation for a national nomination, you DO NOT need to have the letters for the local, OSU portion of the selection process. You only need to supply the NAMES of your recommenders for your OSU nomination.
