2010 NEH Summer Institute: The Lost World of Early America with John Demos
APPLICATION DEADLINE: March 2, 2010
This summer, the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History Summer Seminars will offer The Lost World of Early America, a two-week NEH Summer Institute led by historian John Demos at Yale University. Teachers invited to participate will travel back to the Colonial Era in order to explore the lives of early Americans—and, in turn, gain a richer understanding of the changes that resulted from both the American Revolution and the Industrial Revolution in the American experience.
All K-12 history, social studies, and English teachers, including those who attended a Gilder Lehrman Summer Seminar in 2009, are now eligible to apply to this NEH Summer Institute. For further details, visit:
This is a unique opportunity for Summer Seminar alumni who typically have to alternate years for their application.
Selected participants will receive fellowships to offset travel costs to the Institute, July 18-31, 2010—and be eligible to apply to and attend the full range of Gilder Lehrman Summer Seminars in 2010 and the future.
Apply now: seminar space is limited.
Application deadline: March 2, 2010
