You must accept or decline the offer of a 2018 summer stipend no later than April 30.  To accept the award, please complete, print, manually sign, and return the acceptance form  to the NEH Summer Stipends Program by either scanning and e-mailing it to stipends[at]neh[dot]gov or faxing it to (202) 606-8204 by this deadline.

Instructions for Completing the Acceptance Form

The acceptance form is used to accept an NEH summer stipend and to indicate the exact dates of your award tenure.  You should retain a copy of the completed form for your records and notify the Summer Stipends Program whenever you make modifications to the arrangements agreed to by the NEH.  The acceptance form must include the following information:

1.  Application Number:  Your application number, a combination of a two-letter prefix (FT) plus six digits, can be found on your offer letter.

2.  Name

3.  Social Security Number

4.  Mailing Address, Home and Office Phone Numbers, and E-Mail Address

5.  Summer Stipend Term Dates: Tenure must cover an uninterrupted period of two consecutive months.  Indicate the month and year in which you will begin your summer stipend term and the month and year in which you will end your term.  (For example: 6/2018 to 7/2018.)  Please note that your term must begin on the first day of your chosen first month and end on the last day of your chosen final month.  

BANK ACCOUNT INFORMATION: The acceptance form does NOT request banking information for direct deposit of your award payments.  Once NEH receives your completed and signed acceptance form, you will be sent two official award documents by e-mail: an award letter and a Notice of Action indicating a payment date.  The latter includes instructions for submitting your banking information to NEH.

6.  Acceptance and Certification:  You must accept or decline the offer of a 2018 NEH summer stipend no later than April 30, 2018.  To accept the award, please complete, print, manually sign, and return the acceptance form to the NEH Summer Stipends Program by either scanning and e-mailing it to stipends[at]neh[dot]gov or faxing it to (202) 606-8204 by this deadline.
