Subject: Summer 2001 NEH Seminars and Institutes

ANNOUNCING: Summer 2001
National Endowment for the Humanities (U.S.A.)
Seminars and Institutes for College and University Teachers

Application Deadline: March 1, 2001
Each summer the National Endowment for the Humanities supports a variety 
of study opportunities in the humanities for faculty who teach American 
undergraduates. Seminars and institutes are national, residential, and
rigorous. Designed to strengthen the quality of the humanities teaching and
scholarship, they are led by some of the nation's outstanding scholars and 
take place at major colleges and universities and archival facilities across 
the United States and abroad. 

Topics considered among the 24 seminars and institutes during the summer of 
the year 2001 include the African Diaspora, literature in the age of
information technologies, American Pragmatism and culture, environmental 
ethics, and the post-communist experience in Eastern Europe. For a complete 
list of both seminars and institutes, go to the NEH Web site 
( ), or phone (202/606-8463), or 
e-mail (

The listings contain seminar and institute titles and the means to contact
each director. Prospective applicants can request information from as many
seminar and institute directors as they wish but may apply to only two NEH 
summer offerings. 

In response to a request for information, seminar and institute directors
will send a letter describing the content, logistics, expectations, and 
conditions of that project. Each letter will be accompanied by application 
instructions as well as information about the program's costs. Participants 
receive from the National Endowment for the Humanities a stipend based on the 
length of the seminar or institute. Year 2001 stipends are $2,800 for four 
weeks, $3,250 for five weeks, and $3,700 for six weeks and are intended to 
help cover travel costs and living expenses, as well as books and 
miscellaneous expenses.

Requests for information and completed applications should NOT be directed
to the National Endowment for the Humanities; they should be addressed to the
individual projects as found in the listings. The application deadline is 
March 1.
