* * *
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, phone, or e-mail (web address, telephone number, and e-mail address shown below).
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.
