HOW TO APPLY

You may download application information and instructions that apply to all NEH Landmarks workshops here [We will link to new NEH materials in October 2018]. This document includes important information about selection criteria, stipends, and conditions of the award. 

To apply to participate in “Manifest Destiny Reconsidered: The Utah Experience,” you must complete the following:

    • A résumé or short biography that details your educational qualifications and professional experience. Be sure the résumé provides the name, title, phone number, and e-mail address of one professional reference.
    • An application essay (no longer than two double-spaced pages) that addresses your professional background, interest in the subject of the workshop; special perspectives, skills or experiences that would contribute to the workshop; and how the experience will enhance your teaching or school service.

Send your NEH coversheet, résumé, and essay as email attachments to Beth James at beth.james@utah.edu no later than March 1, 2019.  Do not send application materials directly to NEH.  Successful applicants will be notified of their selection on March 31, 2019 and will have until TBD to accept or decline the offer.

CONTINUING EDUCATION CREDITS

Participants who wish to receive academic credit (up to 3 credits) through Continuing Education at the University of Utah pay a $100 administrative fee.  For additional information, contact Beth James at beth.james@utah.edu or 801-581-8473.

STIPEND, TENURE, AND CONDITIONS OF AWARD

Teachers selected to participate as NEH Summer Scholars will receive a $1,200 stipend after the workshop concludes. Stipends are intended to help cover travel expenses to and from the project location, books, and ordinary living expenses. Stipends are taxable.

NEH Summer Scholars are required to attend all scheduled meetings and to engage fully as professionals in all project activities.  Participants who do not complete the full tenure of the project will receive a reduced stipend. 

At the end of the workshop, NEH Summer Scholars will be asked to provide an assessment of their workshop experience, especially in terms of its value to their personal and professional development.  These confidential online evaluations will become a part of the project’s grant file.
