Application Period Open for NEH 2010 Summer Workshops & Seminars

The National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) has announced it is now accepting applications for its 2010 Summer Programs in the Humanities for Teachers. The application deadline for all four programs is March 2, 2010 (postmark).

The Landmarks of American History and Culture Workshops provide educators with the opportunity to engage in intensive study and discussion of important topics in American history at sites of historical or cultural significance. There are separate workshops for community college and K-12 educators. Community college educators can access registration information at NEH’s Website by clicking here, and K-12 educators by clicking here.

These one-week programs will give participants direct experiences in the interpretation of significant historical and cultural sites and the use of archival and other primary evidence. Faculty selected to participate will receive a stipend of $1,200. Stipends help cover living expenses, books, and travel expenses to and from the Workshop location.

Registration information is also available for the Summer Seminars and Institutes programs. There are separate programs for K-12 and college and university educators.

Summer Seminars and Institutes for School Teachers provide K-12 educators with a means to deepen their understanding of important subjects in the humanities.

Summer Seminars and Institutes for College and University Teachers allow college and university faculty to gain a deeper knowledge of current scholarship in key fields of the humanities and advance their own teaching and research.
