Grants of up to $60,000 to USA educators and staff members at Tribal IHEs for humanities-based activities. Funding is intended to support a wide range of research projects, publications, and scholarly activities related to the study of the humanities. Eligible projects are conducted at Tribal colleges and universities, include pursuing research in primary and secondary materials and producing articles, monographs, books, digital materials, archaeological site reports, translations, or other scholarly resources. Projects may be at any stage of development.

This program offers flexibility in project types and award periods. Awards may support faculty research that engages undergraduate students at the affiliated institution or members of the local community. Common to all projects must be research on humanities topics, such as languages or literature, history, philosophy, or religion. Examples of eligible projects include: 

  • Research related to tribal or institutional priorities, goals or interests, such as projects that draw on cultural or institutional archival collections 
  • The development of materials in support of sustaining, preserving and revitalizing culture or language 
  • Research leading to the improvement of an existing undergraduate or graduate course 
  • Travel to and research in archival or cultural collections with significant holdings in the researcher’s area of expertise or in an area of tribal or institutional priority or interest 
  • Research and preparation leading to the development of a humanities seminar for students at the affiliated institution and/or members of the local community. Research seminars must be prepared and led by an individual faculty or staff member and must engage participants with primary sources. Seminars should develop participants’ knowledge and skills with humanities research methodologies, such as the collecting of oral histories, indigenous research methods, language or linguistic methods, and/or archival research. 
  • The development of books, monographs, peer-reviewed articles, e-books, digital materials, translations with annotations or a critical apparatus, critical editions, or other humanities resources 

NEH is especially interested in supporting projects that advance humanities-related work in the following areas.

  • “A More Perfect Union”: NEH Special Initiative Advancing Civic Education and Commemorating the Nation’s 250th Anniversary
  • Protecting Our Cultural Heritage

Estimated Total Program Funding:

$1,000,000

Number of Grants:

20

Estimated Size of Grant:

The amount of the award is $5,000 per full-time month (or part-time equivalent). The maximum award is $60,000 for the equivalent of twelve full-time months. The minimum award is $10,000, corresponding to the equivalent of two months of full-time work. Thus, an award to support 14 months of half-time work would be $35,000 (equivalent to 7 months of full-time work.)

Term of Contract:

2 to 12 months, full-time equivalent. Applicants may work between half time and full time on a project, or in combination, starting between January 1, 2023, and September 1, 2024.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Eligible Applicants: Individual faculty and staff members affiliated with a Tribal College or University.

The program is open to all faculty and staff members, including full-time, part-time, adjunct, and retired faculty and staff at a TCU. Awards support individuals who work between half time and full time on their projects.

Citizenship:
U.S. citizens who teach at, serve on the staff of, or have retired from a Tribal College or University are eligible to apply. Foreign nationals who have been living in the United States or its jurisdictions for at least the three years prior to the application deadline are also eligible, provided that they teach at, serve on the staff of, or have retired from a Tribal College or University. Foreign nationals who take up permanent residence outside the United States any time between the application deadline and the end of the period of performance will forfeit their eligibility to hold an award. (Leaving the U.S. on a temporary basis is permitted.)

Currently enrolled students:
While applicants need not have advanced degrees, individuals currently enrolled in a degree-granting program are ineligible to apply. Applicants who have satisfied all the requirements for a degree and are awaiting its conferral are eligible for NEH Awards for Faculty.
