Participant Application Cover Sheet

Summer Seminars and Institutes

A completed application consists of the following items:

  • the completed application cover sheet;
  • a résumé or short biography with contact information for two professional references; and
  • an application essay (no longer than four double-spaced pages).

Individual applicants are allowed to apply to up to TWO different seminars or institutes; however, they may participate in only ONE seminar or institute per summer.

Note that filling out a cover sheet is not the same as applying. A full application consists of all of the items listed above. Please send your completed application to the project director. Do not send it to the NEH.

You must submit a separate cover sheet online for each project to which you are applying in order to generate a unique tracking number for each application. Do not copy and paste the same cover sheet for different projects.

The application cover sheet must be completed in one sitting. We estimate that it will take you 15 minutes to complete a cover sheet. If you are inactive for more than two hours, your work will no longer be available for editing. Incomplete or inaccurate applications may be deemed ineligible.

Please indicate whether you are applying to participate in
