Faculty interested in applying for this National Endowment for the Humanities opportunity should note the October 1, 2009 deadline.

Teaching Development Fellowships (TDF) support college and university teachers pursuing research aimed specifically at improving their undergraduate teaching. The program has three broad goals: 1) to improve the quality of humanities education in the United States; 2) to strengthen the link between research and teaching in the humanities; and 3) to foster excellence in undergraduate instruction… Teaching Development Fellowships cover periods lasting from three to five months and carry stipends of $4,200 per month. Thus the maximum stipend is $21,000 for a five-month award period… Recipients may begin their award as early as June 1, 2010, and as late as March 1, 2011.
