Announcing:
Applications to Conduct an NEH Summer Program in Summer 2010
National Endowment for the Humanities (U.S.A.)


Every summer since 1967, the National Endowment for the Humanities has
sponsored residential summer programs for college and university faculty
and K-12 teachers. These academically rigorous programs, which currently
include 2-6 week Summer Seminars and Institutes and 1-week Landmarks of
American History and Culture Workshops, are specifically designed to
provide American educators with an opportunity for intensive study of
important texts and topics in the humanities. The NEH invites you to join
a distinguished roster of humanities scholars who have enjoyed the
rewarding experience of organizing and directing an NEH summer program in
their own field of specialization.

Seminars and Institutes

Application Deadline is March 3, 2009 (receipt)

NEH Summer Seminars and Institutes provide for collegial discussion, active
scholarship, and faculty development in ways suited to educators at all
levels from grade school through college.

Participants have called NEH Seminars and Institutes “life-changing”
experiences. They often note that they view the host institution as an
important resource for future scholarly endeavors for themselves and for
their students.

The application guidelines for projects to be held in 2010 are on the NEH
website at: www.neh.gov/grants/guidelines/seminars.html (for school
teachers and college/university teachers). The Endowment encourages
proposals for Seminars and Institutes in the following areas: projects
designed to help school teachers improve their foreign language proficiency
in order to broaden their understanding of other cultures; projects for
school teachers that focus on one or more of the artists or artworks
featured in the NEH Picturing America program; and projects intended
primarily for community college faculty.


Landmarks of American History and Culture Workshops

Application Deadline is March 17, 2009 (receipt)

These grant opportunities are part of the We the People initiative, which
is designed to enhance the teaching, study, and understanding of American
history and culture. Landmarks of American History and Culture Workshops
bring groups of K-12 teachers or community college faculty together for
intensive, 1-week, residence-based workshops at or near significant
American sites. Eligible applicants include museums, libraries, cultural
and learned societies, state humanities councils, colleges and
universities, schools and school districts. Collaborative programs are
encouraged.

The application guidelines for projects to be held in 2010 will be posted
soon on the NEH website at: www.neh.gov/grants/guidelines/landmarks.html
(for school teachers) or www.neh.gov/grants/guidelines/landmarkscc.html
(for community college faculty).

The Endowment encourages proposals for Landmarks of American History and
Culture Workshops that focus on one or more of the artists or artworks
featured in the NEH Picturing America program.

Now is the time to draft a proposal or to contact a colleague whom you
think might be interested in developing a project. We strongly recommend
that you work with one of the program officers listed below:

questions that are likely to arise in the review process.
