Participating in an NEH summer program brings certain benefits and expectations. 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.
Each participant will receive a $1,300 stipend. The stipend is intended to help cover travel, housing, meals, and basic academic expenses. Stipends are taxable.
Accepted applicants must decide to participate in The Space Race on the Space Coast by April 8, 2022. 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.
Full-Time Study and Tenure: Project applicants who accept an offer to participant 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.
Dismissal from the Program: All NEH Landmarks participants are expected to conduct themselves in a professional manner at all times. This requires a respectful attitude toward fellow participants, faculty, guest lecturers, and others in all settings (program sessions, field trips, etc.). Unprofessional behavior will not be tolerated and egregious or repeated violations of this principle will be considered grounds for dismissal from the program at the discretion of the Project Director. Reasons for dismissal may include, but are not limited to, repeated absences from scheduled activities and disruptive or threatening behavior.
