Subject: Announcing: Call for Proposals to Direct NEH Seminars and Institutes for Summer 2003

National Endowment for the Humanities (U.S.A.)
Applications to Conduct an NEH Seminar or Institute 
in Summer 2003

Application Deadline: March 1, 2002.

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 28 projects
for school teachers and 23 for college and university faculty in the
summer of 2002. You may find lists of these projects on the NEH
website at <school teachers)
and (college and
university teachers). If you or your colleagues would like to apply
to offer a seminar or institute in 2003, 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 can be found on the NEH website at 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.
