NEH Summer Institutes for Higher Education Faculty – February 15, 2022 deadline

This NEH program provides higher education faculty across the nation the opportunity to broaden and deepen their engagement with the humanities.  The one- to four-week professional development programs allow participants to explore recent developments in scholarship, teaching, and/or curriculum through study of a variety of humanities topics. Seminars provide a focused environment in which sixteen participants study a specific humanities topic under the guidance of established scholars.  Seminars have few, if any, visiting faculty.  Seminars emphasize sustained interaction among the participants and project director(s) through discussion of common readings and conversations about scholarship and teaching.  Substantial time is made available for reflection, work on independent or collaborative projects, and related advising. Institutes allow twenty-five to thirty-six participants to study a humanities topic with a team of experienced scholars.  Institutes typically have more meeting time than seminars.  Project leaders and participants mutually explore connections between scholarship and teaching.  Some time is reserved for work on individual or collaborative projects.
