Subject: FYI: Applications to Conduct an NEH Seminar or Institute
From: "Ferguson, Joyce" <JFerguson@...>
National Endowment for the Humanities (U.S.A.)
Applications to Conduct an NEH Seminar or Institute
in Summer 2002
Application Deadline: March 1, 2001.
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 30
projects for school teachers and 24 for college and university
faculty in the summer of 2001. You may find lists of current
projects at http://www.neh.gov/teaching/seminars1.html
(school teachers) and
(college and university teachers). If you or your colleagues would
like to apply to offer a seminar or institute in 2002, please be in
touch with one of the NEH program staff listed below to discuss
your application. Program staff can answer questions, 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
http://www.neh.gov/grants/onebook/seminars.html. Printed copies
can be obtained by e-mailing sem-inst@.... 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.
