Montgomery College will be hosting a two-week residential NEH Summer Institute for Higher Education Faculty entitled “Concepts of Black Diaspora in the United States: Identity and Connections Among African, Afro-Caribbean, and African American Communities.”

Each participant will receive a $2,200 stipend. This stipend is intended to help cover travel, housing, meals, and basic academic expenses. Stipends are determined according to the format and duration of the summer program and are taxable as income. Half will be paid at the beginning of the program and a half at the end.

Project applicants who accept an offer to participate are expected to remain during the entire period of the program and to participate in its work on a full-time basis. If a participant is obliged through special circumstances to depart before the end of the program, it shall be the recipient institution’s responsibility to see that only a pro rata share of the stipend is received or that the appropriate pro rata share of the stipend is returned if the participant has already received the full stipend.

  • Deadlines:
    • Participant applications are due on March 1, 2022.
    • All applicants will be notified of their status (whether accepted, waitlisted, or not accepted) by Friday, March 25, 2022.
    • Selected participants must accept or decline by April 8, 2022.

Once an applicant has accepted an offer to attend any NEH Summer Program (Seminar, Institute, or Landmark), he/she/they may not accept an additional offer or withdraw in order to accept a different offer.

Participants will be selected by a committee consisting of three members, including the project director(s).
