Description

Interns in the Division of Research Programs work on projects consistent with the scholarly mission of the Division. Prior interns have examined such things as emerging trends in a particular field or possible ways to classify institutions that support research. All interns in the Division will work as part of a team of other NEH staff members on the national competition for NEH Fellowships. This could include taking notes at panel meetings across several humanities disciplines, processing the results of those meetings, and working with the program to produce a slate of recommended Fellows. The intern would also perform some routine clerical and statistical work. Traditionally, interns in the Division of Research have been given the opportunity to accompany staff members on visits to locally funded projects.

Through the Division of Research Programs, the NEH supports the advancement of knowledge and understanding in the humanities through programs designed to support institutional collaborative projects as well as projects being pursued by individual scholars. Division grants support projects to produce scholarly editions, translations, and other basic research; archaeological work; and interpretive scholarship in all fields of the humanities. The Division is also deeply involved in the NEH Digital Humanities Initiative, encouraging scholars to use digital tools to enhance scholarship.
