Subject: 	NEH Grants to Direct Summer Programs

ANNOUNCING:
National Endowment for the Humanities (U.S.A.)
Applications to Conduct an NEH Summer Program in Summer 2008

Each summer the National Endowment for the Humanities supports faculty 
development through residential projects:  2-6 week Seminars and 
Institutes and 1-week Landmarks of American History and Culture Workshops. 
These projects are designed to provide American teachers with the 
opportunity for intensive study of important texts and topics in the 
humanities.

SEMINARS AND INSTITUTES

Application Deadline is March 1, 2007 (receipt)

Seminars and institutes 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.  Participants 
have called the seminars and institutes life changing experiences.  They 
often note that they view the host institution as an important resource 
for future scholarly endeavors for themselves and for their students.  The 
application guidelines for projects to be held in 2008 are posted on the 
NEH website at: <www.neh.gov/grants/guidelines/seminars.html 
<http://www.neh.gov/grants/guidelines/seminars.html> (for school teachers 
and college/university teachers).

Now is the time to draft a proposal or to contact a colleague whom you 
think might be interested in developing a project.  We strongly recommend 
that you work with one of the program officers listed below:

Program staff can answer questions, 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.

Applications must be submitted electronically through Grants.gov. 
Institutions must register with Grants.gov, a process which usually takes 
about two weeks.

We look forward to working with you.
