NEH Summer Seminars and Institutes
About NEH Seminars
Summer Seminars for School Teachers are offered by the National Endowment for the Humanities to provide teachers an opportunity for substantive study of significant humanities ideas and texts. Prior to completing an application to a specific seminar, please review the letter from the seminar director and consider carefully what is expected in terms of residence and attendance, reading and writing requirements, and general participation in the work of the project.
A Seminar for School Teachers enables 16 NEH Summer Scholars to explore a topic or set of readings with a scholar having special interest and expertise in the field. The core material of the seminar need not relate directly to the school curriculum; the principal goal of the seminar is to engage teachers in the scholarly enterprise and to expand and deepen their understanding of the humanities through reading, discussion, writing, and reflection.
