Division of Education Professional Development Programs
The NEH Division of Education supports professional development programs for K-12 educators, higher education faculty, and humanities professionals to study a variety of humanities topics.
Institutes are one to four-week professional development programs that convene K-12 educators or higher education faculty from across the nation to deepen their understanding of significant topics in the humanities and enrich their capacity for effective scholarship and teaching.
Landmarks of American History and Culture programs are one-week workshops held across the nation that enhance how K-12 educators, higher education faculty, and humanities professionals incorporate place-based approaches to humanities teaching and scholarship.
Stipends of $1300-$3450 for residential and combined programs and $650-$1725 for virtual programs help to defray costs for these one- to four-week programs.
Applications for all programs open on December 15, 2023 and close on March 5, 2024.
Professional development programs include the following format options:
Residential: All participants attend for the duration of the project at the host site.
Virtual: All participants attend for the duration of the project using an online platform. This can include synchronous and asynchronous sessions.
Combined: All participants attend a portion of the project online and a portion of the project at the host site. Online and residential sessions occur at different times, but participants attend the same format simultaneously.
