NEH Summer Scholars will receive the NEH-stipulated stipend of $2,100 to cover their expenses during the institute. The first check will be paid during the first week and the second during the final week. (Payment will require completing a W9 form, including your Social Security number, and taxes will apply to this stipend.) Stipends are intended to help cover books and other research expenses, and ordinary living expenses. Applicants should note that supplements will not be given in cases where the stipend is insufficient to cover all expenses.
Institute participants are required to attend all meetings and to engage fully as professionals in the work of the program. Partcipants who, for any reason, do not complete the full tenure of the program must refund a pro-rata portion of the stipend.
