NEH summer programs for Community College faculty

The National Endowment for the Humanities supports tuition-free summer programs for community college faculty. There is also a series for K-12 teachers. Friends who have taken these workshops recommend them enthusiastically. You can follow NEH Education on Twitter.

NEH Landmarks of American History and Culture: Workshops for Community College Faculty. Application Deadline: March 1, 2011

NEH Landmarks of American History and Culture Workshops are tuition-free summer programs for community college faculty. These one-week projects take place at sites of historical or cultural significance across the nation. Participants receive stipends to help cover travel and living expenses.

These projects are designed for faculty members at American community colleges. Adjunct and part-time lecturers as well as full-time faculty are eligible to apply. Other community college staff, including librarians and administrators, are eligible to compete, provided they can advance the teaching and/or research goals of the workshop. An applicant need not have an advanced degree in order to qualify. 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. 

The ten workshops for 2011 are:
  •  Concord, Massachusetts: Transcendentalism and Social Action in Antebellum America
  • Thomas Jefferson: Legacies and Landmarks
