NEH SUMMER SEMINARS and INSTITUTES FOR SCHOOL TEACHERS

ELIGIBILITY CRITERIA

 

These projects are designed principally for full-time or part-time teachers and librarians in public, charter, independent, and religiously affiliated schools, as well as home schooling parents. Other K-12 school-system personnel such as administrators, substitute teachers, and curriculum developers, are also eligible to participate.


Teachers at schools in the United States or its territorial possessions or Americans teaching in foreign schools where at least 50 percent of the students are American nationals are eligible for this program. Applicants must be United States citizens, residents of U.S. jurisdictions, or foreign nationals who have been residing in the United States or its territories for at least the three years immediately preceding the application deadline. Foreign nationals teaching abroad at non-U.S. chartered institutions are not eligible to apply.


Please note: Three seminar spaces and five institute spaces may be reserved for teachers who are new to the profession (those who have been teaching for five years or less).


Individuals may not apply to an NEH Summer Seminar or Institute whose director is a family member, is affiliated with the same institution, or is someone with whom they have previously studied.


To be considered eligible, applicants must submit a complete application. This includes an NEH cover sheet and the additional materials requested on the individual seminar or institute website.
