      I can't remember if I sent this information!

      for College and University Teachers Summer 2012

      Each year the NEH's Division of Education Programs offers teachers opportunities to study a variety of humanities topics in Summer Seminars and Institutes. Please contact the specific projects listed below for more information about the programs and the application process.

      Application Deadline: March 1, 2012 (postmark)

      Amount of Award
      NEH Summer Scholars are awarded fixed stipends to help cover travel costs, books and other research expenses, and living expenses. Stipend amounts are based on the length of the NEH Summer Seminar or Institute: $2,100 (2 weeks), $2,700 (3 weeks), $3,300 (4 weeks), or $3,900 (5 weeks).

      NEH Summer Seminars and Institutes are designed primarily for teachers of American undergraduate students. Qualified independent scholars and those employed by museums, libraries, historical societies, and other organizations may be eligible to compete, provided they can effectively advance the teaching and research goals of the project.

      You may request information about as many projects as you like, but you may apply to no more than two NEH Summer Programs (seminars, institutes, or Landmarks Workshops) and you may attend only one.

      Please note:

      Adjunct faculty, community college faculty, and first-time participants are encouraged to apply.

      Up to two spaces in each seminar and three spaces in each institute are reserved for current full-time graduate students in the humanities.



      Each NEH Summer Seminar includes sixteen participants working in collaboration with one or two leading scholars. Seminars examine important texts and authors or review significant scholarship on an important historical period or event. Participants have access to a major research collection, with time reserved to pursue individual projects.

      "You've got to be taught to hate and fear

      You've got to be taught from year to year

      It's got to be drummed in your dear little ear

      You've got to be carefully taught"
