Travel the World with the National Endowment for the Humanities

If you're a teacher, you're a lifelong learner with a insatiable curiosity about the world.   If you're a teacher, chances are you spend much of your "vacation" time working to afford your day job.   How are you going to finance the trips of your dreams?   Hooray for the National Endowment for the Humanities!  

Once again they have a list of fascinating summer offerings for teachers through their Landmarks of American History and Culture workshops.  

Application packets must be postmarked by March 1.   Please read the specific requirements for the seminar of your choice.   Scholars who complete the programs are eligible for a $1,200 stipend.   This should help put a dent in your travel expenses.   Recertification/ graduate credit can also be yours for a little extra cash.

Where am I trying to go?  To the most southern place on earth.   You better believe it!   Cleveland, Mississippi.   Go Fightin' Okra!   Will I get chosen to travel to the birthplace of the blues?   Haw, haw, haw, haw.   I sure hope so.  

If you have more time to spare this summer, explore the NEH's summer seminars.   Stipends are based on the length of the coursework, and the deadline for applications is also March 1.
