NEH Institutes are professional development programs that convene higher education faculty or K-12 educators from across the nation to deepen and enrich their understanding of significant topics in the humanities and enrich their capacity for effective scholarship and teaching.
Institutes for K-12 Educators
- You must design your Institutes for K-12 Educators program for a diverse group of 25-36 K-12 educator participants drawn from across the nation.
- You must target a national audience of full- or part-time K-12 educators who teach in public, charter, independent, and religiously affiliated schools, or as home schooling educators.
- You may admit museum educators and other K-12 school personnel who demonstrate that participation will advance project goals and enhance their own professional work.
- You must identify a primary audience for your institute by grade level(s) and subject area(s). You may target a specific audience by, for instance, requiring foreign language proficiency, but the primary audience should be large enough to yield a complete participant group.
- You must reserve twenty percent of available spaces for early-career educators (those who have been teaching for five years or fewer).
Institutes run from one to four weeks and may adopt a variety of schedules and formats to suit the needs of the topic and audience. One week is equivalent to five or six days of structured study.
- You must select one of three formats for the institute:
- Residential: All participants attend the duration of the program at the host site.
- Virtual: All participants attend the duration of the program using an online platform. This can include synchronous and asynchronous sessions.
- Combined: All participants attend a portion of the program virtually and a portion of the program at the host site. Virtual and residential sessions occur at different times, but all participants attend the same sessions.
You may request up to $220,000, depending on the duration of your proposed institute.
- One week: $120,000
- Two weeks: $175,000
- Three weeks: $200,000
- Four weeks: $220,000
NEH anticipates awarding approximately $1,500,000 among an estimated nine recipients for Higher Education Faculty and $1,500,000 among an estimated nine recipients for K-12 Educators.
