The Division of Education Programs of the National Endowment for
the Humanities is pleased to announce its 1994 Institutes for
College and University Faculty.

Institutes for College and University Faculty provide opportunities
for intensive study of ideas, issues, texts, and historical periods
relating to undergraduate teaching in the humanities. They take
place in settings with resources suitable for research in the
humanities, and they offer an environment in which faculty may
examine significant material under the direction of a group of
recognized scholars. They thus prepare faculty to return to their
classrooms with a deeper knowledge of important scholarship in key
fields of the humanities.

Institutes are sponsored by colleges, universities, libraries,
museums, and professional organizations. They are normally
scheduled for a period of four to six weeks during the summer.
Participation is open to full-time teachers in U.S. two-year and
four-year colleges and universities, with twenty to thirty
participants in a given institute selected in open competition by
the institute's staff. The study program of an institute is
designed to emphasize collaborative work under the direction of a
group of scholars. Participants will receive stipends of $250 per
week and an allowance toward the cost of travel, room, and board.

Prospective participants should write or call the directors of the
institutes in which they are interested. There is no need to
communicate directly with the Endowment. The institute application
deadline is March 1, 1994.
