American Social History Project • Center for Media and Learning

Application and Logistical Information

We're excited to learn of your interest in LGBTQ+ Histories of the United States. We will hold the workshop using a hybrid format, with a week of virtual presentations and discussions, followed by a week in New York City, with daily sessions at the Graduate Center (365 5th Avenue, Manhattan) and several off-site trips to archives and libraries that can be accessed via subway. We also will plan a walking tour near Greenwich Village.

Participants will be required to attend all sessions and to spend one week in New York City. Your $2,200 stipend from the NEH should go toward your travel expenses and accommodations in New York City; no additional funds will be available to cover your expenses. The Institute organizers can offer advice and recommendations for your housing, however, participants will be responsible for their own housing arrangements. Although we sincerely hope that you will want to join us, please consider logistics and the feasibility of a week in New York before you decide to apply.

All applications are accepted electronically through this form. In order for us to best assess the impact of your participation for you, your students, and your school community, we encourage you to talk specifically about your classroom experiences and the school environment in which you work. Thank you.
