Please bear in mind, as per NEH guidelines, that individuals may apply for participation in a maximum of two projects, but may attend only one. Also, please take note of NEH’s Principles of Civility for Professional Development Programs. All NEH Summer Scholars are expected to abide by these guidelines and principles for the duration of their participation in an NEH-sponsored program. Applicants should also note that all NEH Summer Scholars are expected to create a formal teaching project reflecting their participation in the program, and are also required to complete a formal evaluation of the program at its conclusion.
- Participants are required to submit an evaluation at the conclusion of the workshop (core questions are included in the Terms and Conditions; however, projects can include additional questions).
- In any given year an individual may apply to a maximum of two NEH summer programs but may attend only one NEH program per summer. Once they have accepted an offer to attend any NEH Summer Program(Landmarks or Institutes), participants may not accept an additional offer or withdraw in order to accept a different offer.
- Project applicants who accept an offer to participate are expected to remain during the entire period of the program and to participate in its work on a full-time basis. If a participant is obliged through special circumstances to either arrive after the beginning of the program or depart before the end of the Landmarks program, it shall be the recipient institution’s responsibility to see that only a pro-rata share of the stipend is received or that the appropriate pro rata share of the stipend is returned if the participant has already received the full stipend.
Stipend, Tenure, and Conditions of Award
Teachers selected to participate will receive a $1,300 stipend to help defray transportation, meals, and lodging costs at the end of the workshop session. If the situation is such that the workshop must be delivered online, the stipend amount will be $650. Stipends are taxable. Quest for Freedom workshop participants are required to attend all scheduled meetings and to engage fully as professionals in keeping with the NEH Principles of Civility in all project activities. Participants who do not complete the full tenure of the project will receive a reduced stipend.

During and at the end of the workshop, participants will be asked to provide an assessment of their workshop experience, especially in terms of its value to their personal and professional development. These confidential online evaluations will become a part of the project’s grant file. Completion of the evaluation is a requirement of the stipend.
