Institutional applicants: Indicate the name and address of your institution. Provide your institution's DUNS Number and Employer Identification Number. Beginning October 1, 2003, all institutions applying to federal grant programs are required to provide a DUNS number, which is issued by Dun & Bradstreet, as part of their application. Project directors should contact their institution's grant administrator or chief financial officer to obtain their institution's DUNS number. Federal grant applicants can obtain a DUNS number for free by calling 1-866-705-5711. For more information about obtaining a DUNS number, visit www.neh.gov.
3. TYPE OF APPLICANT Check "institution" if an institution or nonprofit organization will administer the grant. Provide the following: Institution type. Describe the type of institution: educational (e.g., secondary school, school district, two-year college, four-year college), religious organization, museum, historical society, government (e.g., state, local), media (e.g., TV, radio, newspaper), library (e.g., local, public, research), center (e.g., advanced study, research), or any other term that best describes the institution. Institution status. Indicate private nonprofit or a unit of government. Check "individual" if applying for a Fellowship, Faculty Research Award, Summer Stipend, or any other program that awards grants directly to individuals. Provide the following: Citizenship status. Indicate your citizenship status. If you are not a U.S.citizen, specifythe month and year when you most recently came to live in the United States. Professional status. Indicate whether you are a university teacher or a college teacher/independent scholar. Also indicate whether you are a junior scholar (an instructor or assistant professor or the recipient of an academic degree no more than seven years ago) or a senior scholar. See program guidelines for further details.
4. CONGRESSIONAL DISTRICT Provide the number of your congressional district. Institutional applicants should use the district in which their institution resides. Individual applicants should use the district for their primary residence. For example, if your institution is located in the 5th Congressional District of California, put a "5." If you don't have a congressional district (e.g. you live in a state or U.S. territory that doesn't have districts or you reside in a foreign country), put a "0." If you need help determining your district, please visit the House of Representatives website at http://www.house.gov/ and use the "Find Your Representative" tool.
5. GRANT PROGRAM Write the name of the NEH grant program for which you are submitting an application.
6. TYPE OF APPLICATION Check "new" if the application requests a new period of funding, whether for a new project or the next phase of a project previously funded by NEH. Proposals for Fellowships, Summer Stipends, and Faculty Research Awards are considered new applications. Check "supplement" if the application requests additional funding for a current NEH grant. If requesting a supplement, provide the current grant number. Applicants should discuss their request with a program officer before submitting an application.
7. PROJECT FIELD CODE Indicate the humanities field of the project using the codes listed on page 5. If the project is multidisciplinary, choose the code that corresponds to the project's predominant discipline.
8. PROJECT TITLE Indicate the title of the project. Titles should be brief, descriptive, and substantive. They should also be informative to a non-specialist audience.
9. PROJECT DESCRIPTION Provide a description of the project in the space provided. Descriptions should be written for a nonspecialist audience and clearly state the importance of the proposed work and its relation to larger issues in the humanities.
10. REQUESTED GRANT PERIOD Give the beginning and ending date of the requested grant period. Grants must begin on the first day of a month and end on the last day of a month. See program guidelines for the allowable length of a grant.

For programs that have a set stipend (i.e., Fellowships, Summer Stipends, and Faculty Research Awards), enter the amount of the stipend in column one, line E, "total project costs." For stipend amounts, see the "Award Information" section of the program's guidelines. Challenge Grants applicants should use the second column.
12. ADDITIONAL FUNDING Indicate whether the proposal will be submitted to another NEH division, government agency, or private entity for funding. NEH frequently cosponsors projects with other funding sources. Providing this information will not prejudice the application's review. If not applicable, write "NA."

Institutional applicants are required to certify that they will comply with the nondiscrimination statutes. When requesting more than $100,000, applicants must also certify that no federal funds have been or will be paid to any person to influence the funding decision. In the unlikely event that applicants have used or plan to use nonfederal funds for this purpose, they must request, complete, and submit a standard disclosure form. More information about the certifications can be found in the Award Administration section of NEH's program guidelines or by contacting NEH's Office of Grant Management, Room 311, Washington, DC 20506, 202-606-8494. Applicants should read the certifications before signing the application.
13. GRANT ADMINISTRATOR INFORMATION FOR INSTITUTIONS Individual applicants do not need to provide this information. Indicate the form of address, position title, name, and institution for the official responsible for the administration of the grant (e.g., negotiating the project budget and ensuring compliance with the terms and conditions of the award). This person is often a grants or research officer, or a sponsored programs official. The project director should not be listed here. Enter the mailing address, telephone and fax numbers, and e-mail of the grant administrator.
14. FELLOWSHIP AND SUMMER STIPEND APPLICANTS Provide the names, departments, and institutions of referees. Summer Stipend applicants who require nomination must provide the name, title, and signature of their nominating official. Other applicants do not need to be nominated.

This person must sign and date the application.
