Participant Expectations


Teacher participants are expected to consult the required readings and participate in sessions during the institute. Participants will create a lesson plan during the institute which they will be required to turn into the project directors, for use in their classrooms and to share with fellow participants. Participants are required to submit a project evaluation.

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 depart before the end of the 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. In addition, participants are required to complete an evaluation of the program upon its conclusion. 

Once an applicant has accepted an offer to attend any NEH Summer Program (Seminar, Institute, or Landmark), they may not accept an additional offer or withdraw in order to accept a different offer.
