About NEH Summer Institutes
NEH Institutes allow K-12 educators an opportunity to enrich and revitalize their teaching through the study of humanities topics that bear upon K-12 education. Participants will receive a certificate upon completion of the program, but the programs are not intended to duplicate graduate-level courses.
Participants will receive a $2,850 stipend for participation in the institute. The stipend is taxable. The stipend is intended to help cover expenses incurred through participation in the program. Stipends are determined according to the duration of the NEH Institute. This institute is considered a three-week institute as it includes two weeks in person and the equivalent of an additional week spread over several months via virtual learning opportunities.
Full-Time Study and Tenure
Participants are expected to attend all meetings and engage fully as professionals in the work of the Institute. During the summer session, participants may not undertake teaching assignments or professional activities unrelated to their participating in the Institute. Those who, for any reason, do not complete the full tenure of the Institute - including the in-person and virtual components - will receive a reduced stipend.
Participants are also required to submit an evaluation at the end of the program.
Dismissal from the Program
All participants are expected to conduct themselves in a professional manner at all times. This requires a respectful attitude toward fellow participants, faculty, guest lecturers, and others in all settings (program sessions, field trips, etc.). Unprofessional behavior will not be tolerated, and egregious or repeated violations of this principle will be considered grounds for dismissal from the program at the discretion of the Project Directors. Reasons for dismissal may include, but are not limited to, repeated absences from scheduled activities and disruptive or threatening behavior.
Consult the NEH Principles of Civility for more information about expectations of participant behavior during the Institute.
