*About the Institutes*
Summer Institute fees are $75/institute and include 30 CEUs,
readings, field trips, and lunch for each day of the institute.
All institutes will be held on the University of Minnesota's
Minneapolis campus. Details about room and building locations will be mailed out with your readings prior to the start of the institute.
If you wish to register for undergraduate or graduate credit, you will be assessed tuition at the current rates and if you are not a current U of M student, you may register through the College of Continuing Education at the reduced departmental masters rate of $388/credit. Each institute is a 2 credit course.
Teachers from outside the Minneapolis-Saint Paul metro area are eligible to stay in on-campus housing in single rooms. Each institute has a limited number of housing scholarships available to teachers on a first-come, first-served basis. After the housing scholarship funds are depleted, you may still pay for a room at the rate of $50/night. Visit

To encourage teachers from outside the Minneapolis-St Paul metro area to attend our week-long summer institutes, we have a limited number of travel stipends available. Teachers may apply for stipends up to $250 and they may be used to defray the costs of airfare or mileage. Visit http://igs.cla.umn.edu/outreach to download an application.
