If you have not done one yet, you really should! There seems to be so many fantastic (& new!) topics this year. I am not applying this cycle because I have done an NEH summer program for the past 3 years and I figured a) they’re probably not going to award me a 4th year in a row & b) I want to apply to other things I have put off because I’ve done NEH so much.
If you need some more convincing on why you should spend a week or so of your summer getting to travel for free & learning awesome things, I have some blog posts below of my experiences with NEH. And please feel free to ask any questions if you have them!
