Deadlines for Projects in Summer 2021:

  • Optional Draft: February 12, 2020
  • Final Application: March 3, 2020

Summer Seminars and Institutes are 1- to 4-week residential programs for either K-12 educators OR higher education faculty. They support collegial study of significant topics in the humanities and make use of important scholarship and primary resources such as documents, artifacts, or historic sites. Typically, participants develop a project that translates the topic of study into their classroom teaching and/or scholarship.
