ABOUT THE NATIONAL ENDOWMENT FOR THE HUMANITIES
Created in 1965 as an independent federal agency, the National Endowment for the Humanities supports research and learning in history, literature, philosophy, and other areas of the humanities by funding selected, peer-reviewed proposals from around the nation. Additional information about the National Endowment for the Humanities and its grant programs is available at: www.neh.gov.
Their Summer Institute projects allow K12 educators an opportunity to enrich and revitalize their teaching through the study of humanities topics that bear upon K12 education. Participants receive a certificate upon completion of the program, but the programs are not intended to duplicate graduate-level courses.
