    Application Deadline: March 1, 2001
    Each summer the National Endowment for the Humanities supports a variety of
    study opportunities in the humanities for faculty who teach American
    undergraduates.  Seminars and institutes are national, residential, and
    rigorous. Designed to strengthen the quality of the humanities teaching and
    scholarship, they are led by some of the nation's outstanding scholars and
    take place at major colleges and universities and archival facilities
    across the United States and abroad.
    Topics considered among the 24 seminars and institutes during the summer of
    the year 2001 include the African Diaspora, literature in the age of
    information technologies, American Pragmatism and culture, environmental
    ethics, and the post-communist experience in Eastern Europe.  For a
    complete list of both seminars and institutes, go to the NEH Web site
    (http://www.neh.gov/html/seminars2.html), or phone (202/606-8463), or
    e-mail (sem-inst@neh.gov).
    The listings contain seminar and institute titles and the means to contact
    each director.  Prospective applicants can request information from as many
    seminar and institute directors as they wish but may apply to only two NEH
    summer offerings.
    In response to a request for information, seminar and institute directors
    will send a letter describing the content, logistics, expectations, and
    conditions of that project. Each letter will be accompanied by application
    instructions as well as information about the program's
    costs.  Participants receive from the National Endowment for the Humanities
    a stipend based on the length of the seminar or institute.  Year 2001
    stipends are $2,800 for four weeks, $3,250 for five weeks, and $3,700 for
    six weeks and are intended to help cover travel costs and living expenses,
    as well as books and miscellaneous expenses.

    the individual projects as found in the listings.  The application deadline
    is March 1.

    is funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities and is open to
    all high school teachers in the United States and those teaching in
    American schools abroad.  Twenty-five teachers will be chosen.  The
    stipend is $2800 for the month, and three hours graduate course
    credit will be given to each participant.
    The Institute will explore the uses of manuscripts, typescripts,
    galleys, and various published versions of literary texts to enhance
    critical reading and analysis.  The Institute will be conducted by
    renowned scholars, especially known for their expertise in textual
    studies.  The participants will study in detail the major odes of
    John Keats, the celebrated poems of Emily Dickinson, and the alluring
    poetry of T. S. Eliot.  Participating teachers will also be
    encouraged to apply what they are learning to other writers and works
    of special interest to them in their teaching.  The Institute will
    emphasize interaction between the scholars and the teachers, with
    special attention given to the nuances of teaching poetry in the high
