FAQ

Q: Who selects the participants?

A: Participants for the workshop are selected by the Workshop Organizers and Instructors. This team will strive to create a diverse, welcoming environment and especially encourage applications from minority applicants, women, junior scholars, and the general public.

Q: Do I have to attend the full two days of events?

A: Yes. As the event lasts only two days, attendees are required to be present throughout the entirety of both days. If you cannot attend the two full days, we encourage you to participate in the event via Twitter, our podcasts, and the other media products we make available.

Q: Can the Workshop provide support for accommodations and travel?

This will be handled via reimbursement following policies that will be provided to participants when they are notified (via email) of their acceptance for the event. Participants will need to RSVP to the acceptance notification (via email) to register their agreement to all reimbursement rules and procedures.

Q: Can Workshop organizers help me secure funding from my campus or professional organization?

A: Yes. Organizers would be happy to write a letter of support for any participant selected to attend to help them secure campus support in addition to that provided by NEH. If you need such a letter, once you have received notice that you have been accepted to one of our workshops, please email mith@umd.edu to make this request.
