Subject: NEH: Applications to Conduct a Seminar or Institute in Summer 2002

	ANNOUNCING:
	National Endowment for the Humanities (U.S.A.)
	Applications to Conduct an NEH Seminar or Institute 
	in Summer 2002

	Application Deadline: March 1, 2001.


	Each summer the National Endowment for the Humanities supports
faculty development through residential seminars and institutes. These
projects are designed to provide teachers from across the nation with the
opportunity for intensive study of important texts and topics in the 
humanities.

	Seminars and institutes are intended to foster excellent teaching by
encouraging collegial discussion of humanities topics within close-knit
scholarly communities. They also promote active scholarship in the humanities 
in ways suited to teachers at all levels from grade school through college.

	Now is a good time to begin drafting a proposal to direct a seminar
or institute, or to contact a colleague whom you think might be interested in
developing a project. The NEH is supporting 30 projects for school teachers 
and 24 for college and university faculty in the summer of 2001. You may find
lists of these projects at http://www.neh.gov/teaching/seminars1.html
(school teachers) and http://www.neh.gov/teaching/seminars2.html (college and
university teachers). 
	
	If you or your colleagues would like to apply to offer a seminar or
institute in 2002, please be in touch with one of the NEH program staff 
listed below to discuss your application. Program staff can answer 
questions, discuss current program emphases, provide samples of successful 
applications, and comment on an informal draft. Staff can help anticipate 
questions that are likely to arise in the review process.

	The application guidelines will be found on the NEH website in
mid-December at http://www.neh.gov . Printed copies can be obtained by 
e-mailing sem-instneh.gov. If you have any questions or suggestions, please 
do not hesitate to call on the staff at the NEH Division of Education 
Programs. For general questions, call Joyce Ferguson at 202-606-8463 or 
Jean Hughes at 202-606-8471, or contact one of the program officers listed 
below. We look forward to working with you.
