Stipends. As you know you will receive $3,900. A check for the first half will be waiting for you on at the first meeting of the seminar. We will direct you to local banks for check cashing services and the College will be eager to settle accounts with those of you who elect to live in Drew. The second check will be ready for you about three weeks after the first.
STIPEND, TENURE, AND CONDITIONS OF AWARD
Teachers selected to participate in five-week projects will receive $3,900. Stipends are intended to help cover travel expenses to and from the project location, books and other research expenses, and living expenses for the duration of the period spent in residence. Stipends are taxable. Applicants to all projects, especially those held abroad, should note that supplements will not be given in cases where the stipend is insufficient to cover all expenses.
Seminar and institute participants are required to attend all meetings and to engage fully in the work of the project. During the project's tenure, they may not undertake teaching assignments or any other professional activities unrelated to their participation in the project. Participants who, for any reason, do not complete the full tenure of the project must refund a pro-rata portion of the stipend.
At the end of the project's residential period, participants will be asked to submit online evaluations in which they review their work during the summer and assess its value to their personal and professional development. These evaluations will become part of the project's grant file and may become part of an application to repeat the seminar or institute.
