NEH provides a $2,100 stipend to cover the cost of books, meals, travel, and lodging expenses. Summer Scholars are responsible for purchasing the 4 required books in advance. Lodging costs will be deducted from your stipend ($830 for the entire Institute or $80 for Martha’s Vineyard only). We will also deduct $100 to cover group meals where we need to order and pay in advance. Half of the remaining stipend will be paid on the first day of the Institute. The balance will be paid on the final day.
