Candidate Qualifications:

Full-time tenure/tenure-track faculty members are eligible to apply. Individuals who have held or been awarded a major fellowship or research grant or its equivalent within the three academic years prior to the deadline may not apply. A "major fellowship or research grant" is a postdoctoral research award that provides a stipend of at least $15,000. Development leaves and grants from the University of North Texas and stipends and grants from other sources supporting study and research during the summer are not considered major fellowships. For more information on eligibility requirements, please visit the NEH website.

Institutional Selected Process:

Interested candidates must submit a one page narrative outlining the intellectual justification for the project with objectives, methods, and work plan. Along with the narrative, candidates must submit a two-page curriculum vitae (i.e. a concise summary of publications, presentations, and other relevant scholarly activity). Please refer to the NEH website for examples of nomination materials. Interested candidates should submit their narrative and curriculum vitae to this link by July 19, 2019. A selection committee, appointed by the Office of the Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs, will review the applications and notify the nominees no later than August 12, 2019.

Final Submission:

Final nominations are due on September 25, 2019. UNT nominees are responsible for preparing and uploading their final submission materials on the website, with assistance from the Office for Faculty Success. I hope that you will consider submitting your materials or encouraging a colleague to do so. For information, please contact Faculty Success at 940.565.3987 or
