Participant Stipends

Participants receive a stipend of $2200, set by the NEH and determined by this project’s format and duration, in return for full participation in your project. This stipend is intended to help cover travel, housing, meals and basic academic expenses, and are taxable income. Half will be paid at the beginning of the Institute, and half at the end.

The opening and closing banquet for the institute are provided at no expense to teacher participants, thanks to the generosity of the Georgia State University College of Arts and Sciences, College of Education, Department of Educational Policy Studies, and History Department. 

Two meals during field trips will be prepaid and deducted from the stipend.
