      Workshops for

      Community College Faculty

      Summer 2012

      The National Endowment for the Humanities is an independent grant-making
      agency of the federal government. NEH Landmarks Workshops provide the
      opportunity for community college educators to engage in intensive study
      and discussion of important topics in American history and culture.
      These one-week programs give participants direct experiences in the
      interpretation of significant historical and cultural sites and the use
      of archival and other primary evidence. Landmarks Workshops present the
      best scholarship on a specific landmark or related cluster of landmarks,
      enabling participants to gain a sense of the importance of historical
      places, to make connections between what they learn in the Workshop and
      what they teach, to advance their own scholarship, and to develop
      enhanced teaching materials.

      Amount of Award
      Faculty selected to participate will receive a stipend of $1,200.
      Stipends help cover living expenses, books, and travel expenses to and
      from the Workshop location.

      Full-time faculty members, part-time lecturers, and adjunct faculty at
      American community colleges are eligible to participate. An applicant
      need not have an advanced degree in order to qualify.

      Applicants must be United States citizens, residents of U.S.
      jurisdictions, or foreign nationals who have been residing in the United
      States or its territories for at least the three years immediately
      preceding the application deadline. Foreign nationals teaching abroad at
      non-U.S. chartered institutions are not eligible to apply.

      Applicants must complete the NEH application and provide all of the
      information requested to be considered eligible.

      An individual may apply to up to two NEH Summer Programs in any one year
      (Landmarks Workshops, Summer Seminars, or Summer Institutes), but may
      participate in only one. Please note that eligibility criteria differ
      between the Landmarks Workshops and the Seminars and Institutes

      How to Apply
      Please visit Workshop websites for expanded descriptions and detailed
      application information. You may request information about as many
      Workshops as you like, but as noted above, you may apply to no more than
      two programs and may participate in only one.

      Please note: The application deadline is March 1, 2012 (postmark).

      Please direct all questions concerning individual NEH Landmarks
      Workshops, as well as all requests for application materials, to the
      appropriate information contact person listed below for each program.

      "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"
