FYI: 2005 NEH Grants for Faculty Humanities Workshops
The National Endowment for the Humanities supports grants for Faculty Humanities Workshops to strengthen teachers' knowledge, understanding in history, literature, foreign languages and cultures and other areas of the humanities in United States K-12 and college classrooms. Grants for Faculty Humanities Workshops, typically of one year to eighteen months in duration, support local and regional professional development for K-12 teachers and faculty at post-secondary institutions. Proposals to provide teachers who have limited access to professional development in the humanities are encouraged. These workshops may include teachers at charter schools, parents who home school, private license school faculty, and community college faculty.
The NEH staff encourages consultation with program staff prior to submitting an application.
Application deadline: April 7, 2005
Funding available: up to $30,000 for projects serving a single institution; up to $75,000 for regional or multi-institutional programs Guidelines and application forms are available from the NEH Web site at http://www.neh.gov/grants/index.html
