National Endowment for the Humanities supports K-12 education through its Seminars and Institutes program–here are opportunities for educators dealing with Asia


Dear Educators:

Each year National Endowment for the Humanities supports K-12 education through its Seminars and Institutes program https://www.neh.gov/divisions/education/summer-programs which provides  tuition-free opportunities to study a variety of humanities topics with both distinguished and up-and-coming scholars, as well as like-minded colleagues.  Stipends  of $1,200-$3,300 help cover expenses for these one- to four-week in-depth studies of a humanities topic.  Here are two related to East Asia:

Vietnam–Tonkin
