The National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) and the Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche (CNR, the National Research Council) of the Government of Italy are cooperating in the support of scholarly research. NEH invites applications for humanities research focusing on Italy's cultural heritage in relation to that of the United States. Recipients will be awarded fellowships. The CNR will award fellowships to Italian scholars for research on similar topics in the United States. NEH and CNR each anticipate awarding up to three fellowships.
