Stipend and Expectations
There are 72 stipends available total: 36 for each workshop session. Stipends are awarded on a competitive basis (see How to Apply).
Educators who are selected to participate in a workshop session and officially accept their place by April 2, 2021, will be mailed a $1,300 stipend on the final day of their workshop session (Friday) to help offset the cost of attending the workshop. Stipends are taxable.
Project participants who accept an award are expected to fully participate online during the entire week-long workshop session and to participate fully as professionals in all project activities. Participants who do not complete the full tenure of the workshop will receive a reduced stipend. Participants will be required to have webcams and microphones to participate. Attendance during synchronous activities will be monitored via video and through assessments for asynchronous activities.
Participants who attend and fully participate in the entire workshop session will be eligible to receive continuing education units. Participants who wish to receive graduate credits will be required to register for the credits through Castleton University (at a link provided after April 2). Those taking the class for graduate credit will be expected to complete 45 hours of new learning (3 credits), most of which will take place at the workshop with additional preparatory and follow-up assignments.
Principles of Civility for NEH Workshops
The Endowment’s Workshops are intended to extend and deepen knowledge and understanding of the humanities by focusing on significant topics, texts and issues; contribute to the intellectual vitality and professional development of participants; and foster a community of inquiry that provides models of excellence in scholarship and teaching.
Participants will be expected to partake in the workshop with an ethos of openness and respect and engage in civil discourse.
Workshop presentations and discussions should be:
- firmly grounded in rigorous scholarship, and thoughtful analysis
- conducted without partisan advocacy;
- respectful of divergent views;
- free of ad hominem commentary; and
- devoid of ethnic, religious, gender, disability, or racial bias.
