National Endowment for the Humanities Offers Summer Seminars and Institutes for Teachers

Deadline: March 1, 2003

The National Endowment for the Humanities is now accepting applications from K-12 school teachers and college and university teachers to study humanities topics in a variety of summer seminars and institutes. This national program is designed to promote effective links between teaching and scholarship in the humanities; extend and deepen knowledge and understanding of the humanities by focusing on significant ideas, texts, issues, eras, and events; enhance the intellectual vitality and professional development of participants; and build a community of inquiry and provide models of excellent scholarship and teaching.

The four- to six-week seminars and institutes are conducted at colleges, universities, and other eligible institutions, including research centers. All teachers selected to participate in a seminar or institute will be awarded a stipend of $2,800, $3,250, or $3,700 (depending on the length of the seminar or institute) to cover the costs of travel, books and other research expenses, and living expenses.

NEH is also accepting proposals from organizations wishing to conduct seminars and institutes for the 2004 program. The agency anticipates that awards for seminars will range between $60,000 and $120,000, while awards for institutes will range between $100,000 and $180,000. Any U.S. non-profit with 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status and state and local governmental agencies are eligible to apply. NEH summer seminars and institutes may be proposed by universities, colleges, school systems, learned societies, centers for advanced study, libraries or other repositories, and cultural or professional organizations.

See the NEH Web site for 2003 seminar and institute topics and locations, eligibility criteria, and application guidelines.
