NEH Grants for Undergraduate Teaching - September Deadlines

The National Endowment for the Humanities supports undergraduate course development through:

  • Enduring Question Course Grants (new courses)
  • Teaching Development Fellowships (existing courses)

Enduring Questions Course Grants
Stipend: up to $25,000
Deadline: 15 September 2010

What is the good life? What is beauty? What is friendship? What is the relationship between humans and the natural world? Enduring questions such as these have long held interest to college students and allow for a special, intense dialogue across generations.

Enduring Questions course grants support up to four faculty members from any discipline with up to $25,000 to develop a new undergraduate humanities course on a question of enduring significance, to be taught at least twice during the grant period.

For more information and instructions, please see the grant guidelines here.

Teaching Development Fellowships
Stipend: up to $21,000 ($4,200 per month)
Deadline: 30 September 2010

Teaching Development Fellowships support faculty pursuing research aimed at improving an existing undergraduate course that has been taught in at least three different terms prior to the application deadline. The research undertaken may involve engaging with fundamental texts or sources, exploring related subjects or disciplines, or cultivating neglected areas of learning. Research in any area of the humanities is welcome. These fellowships cover periods lasting from three to five months.
