NEH Fellowships Announced

The National Endowment for the Humanities has announced its Fellowships for 2007-08. Below are the awards that seem to be the most legal history-related, but it is not always easy to tell from titles. Some additional projects may also have legal history components. For a full list of individual fellowships, click here. For the full list of recent awards, including awards to institutions, click here.

If you would like to apply for an NEH Fellowship, keep in mind that the deadline is NOT in the fall, as most other fellowship deadlines are. The deadline for the next round is MAY 1, 2007. For details, deadlines for other programs, and links, click here.
