After You Apply:
A workshop team member will confirm receipt of the cover letter, résumé, and essay within 1 week of your submission. If you do not receive a confirmation email, please call us at 504-314-2854.
Successful applicants will be notified of their selection on Friday, March 29, 2019 and will have until Friday, April 5, 2019, to accept or decline the offer. Please be sure that you have provided an email address and phone number at which you can be reached during that week.
Once you have accepted an offer to attend any NEH Summer Program (NEH Landmarks Workshop, NEH Summer Seminar, or NEH Summer Institute), you may not withdraw in order to accept an offer from another program.
Once you confirm your participation, you will receive additional information about housing, online readings, and other details pertaining to the workshops.
Five workshop spaces will be reserved for teachers who are new to the profession (those who have been teaching for five years or less). While recent participants are eligible to apply, selection committees are charged to give first consideration to applicants who have not participated in an NEH-supported seminar, institute, or workshop. Additionally, preference is given to applicants who would significantly contribute to the diversity of the workshop.
