National Endowment for the Humanities (U.S.A.)
Seminars and Institutes for College and University Teachers

Application Deadline: March 1, 2005
* * *

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 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 32 seminars and institutes offered in the
summer of 2005 include the Bayeux Tapestry, religion and culture, Latin
American philosophy, African cinema, the early American republic, the
Vietnam War, and studies of major figures such as St. Francis of Assisi,
Ralph Waldo Emerson, Joseph Smith, Eugenio María de Hostos, José Martí,
William Faulkner, and Hannah Arendt. For a complete list of both seminars
and institutes, go to the NEH Web site, or phone (202/606-8463), or e-mail


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. Stipends are
$3,000 for four weeks, $3,600 for five weeks, and $4,200 for six weeks and
are intended to help cover travel costs and living expenses, as well as
books and miscellaneous expenses.

   Requests for information and completed applications should NOT be
directed to the National Endowment for the Humanities; they should be
addressed to the individual projects as found in the listings. The
application postmark deadline is March 1.
