NEH Summer Programs

for K-12 Educators and Faculty in Higher Education


NEH Summer Seminars and Institutes and NEH Landmarks of American History and Culture Workshops grants broaden and deepen understanding of the humanities by supporting professional development programs, specifically designed for a national audience of K-12 educators or faculty in higher education. The programs provide one- to four-week opportunities for participants (NEH Summer Scholars) to explore a variety of topics relevant to K-12 or undergraduate education in the humanities. They take place throughout the United States and participant stipends help cover travel and living expenses.

NEH Summer Seminars and Institutes
• focus on the study and teaching of significant texts and other resources;
• provide models of excellent scholarship and teaching;
• contribute to the intellectual growth of the participants; and
• build lasting communities of inquiry.

NEH Landmarks of American History and Culture Workshops
• employ a place-based approach;
• teach historic sites through critical interpretation; and
• explore central themes in American history and government, literature, art, music, and related humanities subjects.
