Subject:        Announcing: Call for Proposals to Direct NEH Seminars and
Institutes for Summer

ANNOUNCING:
National Endowment for the Humanities (U.S.A.)
Applications to Conduct an NEH Seminar or Institute in Summer 2003

Application Deadline: March 1, 2002.

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 28 projects for school
teachers and 23 for college and university faculty in the summer of
2002.  You may find lists of these projects on the NEH website at
http://www.neh.gov/projects/si-school.html school teachers) and
http://www.neh.gov/projects/si-university.html (college and university
teachers).  If you or your colleagues would like to apply to offer a
seminar or institute in 2003, 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 can be found on the NEH website at

questions or suggestions, please do not hesitate to call on the staff at
