Application Deadline (postmarked): March 1, 2012.
NEH Summer Scholars are awarded fixed stipends to help cover travel costs, books and other research expenses, and living expenses. Stipend amounts are based on the length of the NEH Summer Seminar or Institute: $2,100 (2 weeks), $2,700 (3 weeks), $3,300 (4 weeks), or $3,900 (5 weeks).
Full-time teachers in American K-12 schools, whether public, charter, independent, or religiously affiliated, as well as home-schooling parents, are eligible to apply to NEH Summer Seminars and Institutes. Americans teaching abroad are also eligible if a majority of the students they teach are American citizens. Librarians and school administrators may also be eligible.
You may request information about as many projects as you like, but you may apply to no more than two NEH Summer Programs (seminars, institutes, or Landmarks Workshops) and you may attend only one. Eligibility criteria differ between NEH Summer Seminars and Institutes and NEH Landmarks Workshops.
Please note: Up to two spaces in each seminar and three spaces in each institute are available for current graduate students who intend to pursue careers in K-12 teaching.
