From the Greenlee School of Journalism and Communication:

The National Endowment for the Humanities has offered a summer stipend to Assistant Professor Tracy Lucht to undertake her project, “Finding Their Voices: Midwestern Women Broadcasters, 1922-1992.”

These stipends support scholars pursuing advanced research for projects that typically are published in the future. Stipends offer continuous full-time work on a humanities project for a period of two consecutive months.

“Winning a summer stipend is a major accomplishment for Dr. Lucht,” Michael Bugeja, Greenlee director, noted. According to the NEH, in the last five competitions the Summer Stipends program received an average of 960 applications per year. The program made an average of 80 awards per year, for a funding ratio of 8 percent. “This speaks to the quality of her scholarship and the caliber of research being done at the Greenlee School,” Bugeja stated.
