Two-week Residential Institute Stipend: $2,200


NEH-funded institutes are professional development programs that convene K-12 educators or higher education faculty from across the nation in order to deepen and enrich their understanding of a variety of topics in the humanities and enrich their capacity for effective scholarship and teaching.

Stipends are intended to compensate participants for their time commitment and to help defray the cost of participation, which may include expenses such as travel, lodging, and meals. Stipend amounts are determined by NEH based on the duration and format of the program.

The NEH provides $2,200 in stipend funding for each participant in a two-week residential summer institute.

The stipend amount is fixed and is taxable as income.
