Grant Opportunity: Direct an NEH Summer Program in 2012

Since 1967, the National Endowment for the Humanities has funded residential summer programs for college and university faculty and, since 1982, K-12 teachers. These include two- to five-week Summer Seminars and Institutes and one-week Landmarks of American History and Culture Workshops.

Why direct an NEH summer program?

 Directors strengthen teaching and research at the undergraduate or K-12 levels.

 Directors influence their fields of expertise through intense collegial study.

 Directors join a distinguished roster of NEH summer program leaders.

 Directors engage with motivated participants from across the country.

 Directors receive compensation based on pro-rated annual salary.

 Directors bring distinction to their home institutions.
