Notre Dame leads the Nation in NEH Fellowships

Author: College of Arts & Letters

More than any other university since 1999

With support from the Institute for Scholarship in the Liberal Arts, Notre Dame faculty have won 57 National Endowment for the Humanities fellowships since 1999, more than any other university in the country. Many of those winners gathered at a special reception in May 2016 to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the NEH. 

Thank you to the NEH for supporting scholarly research, including Notre Dame's extensive work on the Dead Sea Scrolls, a project featured on the NEH 50th Anniversary website
