Eligibility and Participation
Each applicant selected to participate in a workshop will receive a stipend of $1300 to participate. This is taxable income and while it is designed to offset costs of participation, it may not cover all expenses incurred
Landmarks programs are designed for a national audience of full- or part-time K-12 educators who teach in public, charter, independent, and religiously affiliated schools, or as home schooling educators. Museum educators and other K-12 school system personnel— such as, but not limited to, administrators, substitute teachers, and curriculum supervisors—are also eligible to participate. At least three spaces per workshop session or six spaces total for the entire program must be reserved for teachers who are new to the profession (five or fewer years teaching experience). Participants must be United States citizens, residents of U.S. jurisdictions, or foreign nationals who have been residing in the United States or its territories for at least the three years immediately preceding the application deadline. U.S. citizens teaching abroad at U.S. chartered institutions are also eligible to participate. Foreign nationals teaching abroad are not eligible to participate. Individuals may not apply to participate in a Landmarks workshop whose director is a family member, who is affiliated with the same institution, who has served as an instructor or academic advisor to the applicant, or who has led a previous NEH-funded Institute or Landmarks program attended by the applicant. Participants may not be delinquent in the repayment of federal debt (e.g., taxes, student loans, child support payments, and delinquent payroll taxes for household or other employees). Individuals may not apply to participate in a Landmarks workshop if they have been debarred or suspended by any federal department or agency.
Please Note: An individual may apply to up to two NEH summer projects (NEH Landmarks Workshops, NEH Summer Seminars, or NEH Summer Institutes), but may participate in only one. 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 to accept a different offer.
