MHS-NEH Long-term Fellowships are made possible by the National Endowment for the Humanities; the Society will offer at least two awards in 2019-2020. (See our ad in the H-Net Jobs Guide or visit our website for details.) The stipend, governed by an NEH formula, is $4,200 per month for a minimum of four months and a maximum of twelve months.
