Subject:        NEH Seminars and Institutes

ANNOUNCING:
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 these projects at
http://www.neh.gov/teaching/seminars1.html (school teachers) and
http://www.neh.gov/teaching/seminars2.html  (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, discuss current program emphases, 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 will be found on the NEH website in
mid-December at http://www.neh.gov.  Printed copies can be obtained by
