2018 NEH SUMMER SEMINARS and INSTITUTES for K-12 TEACHERS
A selection committee is comprised of the project director and two or more colleagues, at least one of whom is a K-12 teacher. They evaluate all complete applications to select a group of NEH Summer Scholars and identify alternates.
Application essays should explain how the specific program will benefit the participant professionally. They should, therefore, address the following:
1. your effectiveness and commitment as a teacher/educator;
2. your intellectual interests as they relate to the topic of the seminar or institute;
3. your special perspectives, skills, or experiences that would contribute to the program; and 4. evidence that participation will have a long-term impact on your teaching.
In addition, we ask that 3 completed copies be mailed in.
