NEH Summer Fellowships
The National Endowment for the Humanities’ Summer Stipends program aims to stimulate new research in the humanities and its publication. The program works to accomplish this goal by:
- Providing small awards to individuals pursuing advanced research that is of value to humanities scholars, general audiences, or both
- Supporting projects at any stage of development, but especially early-stage research and late-stage writing in which small awards are most effective
- Funding a wide range of individuals, including independent scholars, community college faculty, and non-teaching staff at universities
Summer Stipends up to $6,000 support continuous full-time work on a humanities project for a period of two consecutive months. NEH funds may support recipients’ compensation, travel, and other costs related to the proposed scholarly research.
Full-time tenured or tenure-track faculty must be nominated by their institutions, which are limited to two (2) nominations per year. RSP coordinates the internal selection process and the Vice Provost for Research is WWU's nominating official.
Individuals who are not full-time, tenured or tenure-track faculty members may also apply and are exempt from the institutional nomination requirement. Nevertheless, RSP encourages those individuals to notify their WWU supervisors as a courtesy—especially if they expect to be WWU employees during the period of performance of the fellowship, if awarded.

Keck Foundation Scientific Research Grant
The W. M. Keck Research Program seeks to benefit humanity by supporting Medical Research and Science & Engineering projects that are distinctive and novel in their approach, question the prevailing paradigm, or have the potential to break open new territory in their field.
Past grants have been awarded to major universities, independent research institutions, and medical schools to support pioneering biological and physical science research and engineering, including the development of promising new technologies, instrumentation or methodologies. Grants range from $1 million to $5 million and are typically $2 million or less.
