Call for Proposals: NEH 2019 Summer Programs

The National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) Summer Seminars and Institutes "focus on the study and teaching of significant texts and other resources; provide models of excellent scholarship and teaching; contribute to the intellectual growth of the participants; and build lasting communities of inquiry." The call for proposals for summer 2019 is now open. According to the website, "a Seminar provides an intimate and focused environment in which sixteen participants study a specific humanities topic under the guidance of one or two established scholars"; an Institute "allows twenty-five to thirty-six participants to pursue an intensive program of study under a team of scholarly experts."  Programs are designed for either K-12 educators or college and university faculty.
    The proposal deadline for Summer 2019 projects is February 22, 2018. Full information, including application instructions and program guidelines, is available on the NEH Seminars and Institutes website.
    Prospective applicants may submit a draft of their proposal for staff comment by January 22, 2018, via email at; questions may be directed to Richard Pettit, Program Analyst, Division of Education, National Endowment for the Humanities, via the email address or by calling 202-606-8471.
