Lodging is provided at two scenic but unassuming hostels on Martha’s Vineyard (Day 1 and 2) and in Hyannis (Days 3-12). In Hyannis hostel, we will rent the entire hostel, giving us sole use of the fully-equipped kitchen. Summer Scholars will have a choice of relaxing in the common room or working a space that will be set aside for quiet study. The location is prime – right on the harbor and within walking distance of the beach and other outdoor activities, shops and restaurants.
The cost of lodging for the Summer Institute (12 nights) is $830. Lodging costs will be deducted from each stipend. All Summer Scholars are encouraged to stay with the group at the Martha’s Vineyard hostel (2 nights @ $40) and at the Hyannis Hostel (10 nights @ $75, checkout on Friday, July 27). The cost of the hostel in Hyannis is higher than on Martha’s Vineyard because we are renting the entire facility, rather than individual beds. Summer Scholars who prefer to stay in other places will have plenty of options if they plan in advance, although the cost will likely be higher.
