Level of Study: Established Anthropologist Eligibility Requirements: The 
Summer Stipends program accepts applications from researchers, teachers, and 
writers regardless of their institutional affiliations. Applicants with 
college or university affiliations, however, must be nominated by their 
institutions. All applicants must have completed their formal education by 
the application deadline. 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 may apply, but such applicants need a letter 
from the dean of the conferring school attesting to the applicant's status 
as of October 1, 2008. This letter must be faxed to the Summer Stipends 
program at 202-606-8204. U.S. citizens are eligible to apply. Foreign 
nationals who have been living in the US or its jurisdictions for at least 
the three years prior to the application deadline are also eligible.

Fellowship Amount: $39,599.00

Description: Summer Stipends support individuals pursuing advanced research 
that is of value to scholars and general audiences in the humanities. 
Recipients usually produce articles, monographs, books, digital materials, 
archaeological site reports, translations, editions, and other scholarly 
tools. Summer Stipends support full-time work on a humanities project for a 
period of two months. Summer Stipends support projects at any stage of 
development. Summer Stipends are awarded to individual scholars. 
Organizations are not eligible to apply. Summer Stipends may not be used for 
research for doctoral dissertations or theses by students enrolled in a 
degree program; specific policy studies or educational or technical impact 
assessments; the preparation or publication of textbooks; studies of 
teaching methods or theories, surveys of courses and programs, or curriculum 
development; inventories of collections; works in the creative or performing 
arts (e.g., painting, writing fiction or poetry, dance performance, etc.); 
projects that seek to promote a particular political, philosophical, 
religious, or ideological point of view; or projects that advocate a 
particular program of social action.
