Stipend

Educators selected to participate in the workshop will receive a $1,200 stipend at the conclusion of the workshop. Stipends are intended to help cover travel expenses to and from the project location, books, and ordinary living expenses. Stipends are taxable.

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

Participants will provide NEH with an assessment of their workshop experience, especially in terms of its value to their personal and professional development. You will be asked to provide a confidential online evaluation at the close of the workshop.

Housing for all 6 nights: $175 total for the week
Opening reception cookout: $20
Lunch at Fort Laramie: $12
Lunch at Wounded Knee: $25
Closing night dinner: $20
Total housing/food cost withheld from stipend: $252
