Stipend

NEH Summer Scholars receive a stipend: $600 for commuting participants who incur no housing costs (in any workshop week, whether designated national or local); $1,200 for residential participants who incur housing costs (with proof of housing costs, if needed). Stipends are intended to help cover travel, lodging, and meal expenses associated with attending the workshop. Stipends are taxable and will be paid at the end of each workshop session. NEH Summer Scholars are required to attend all scheduled meetings and to engage fully as professionals in all project activities. Participants who do not complete the full tenure of the project will receive a reduced stipend.
