NEH Summer Programs 2019

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

• 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

• teach historic sites through critical interpretation; and
• explore central themes in American history and government, literature, art, music, and related humanities subjects.
