ABOUT NEH Summer Seminars and Institutes
Each summer, the National Endowment for the Humanities supports rigorous national, residential seminars and institutes in the humanities for faculty who teach American undergraduates.
These study opportunities allow college and university teachers to gain a deeper knowledge of current scholarship in key fields of the humanities and advance their own teaching and research.
Participants in these two- to six-week projects receive stipends to help defray travel and living expenses.
