This summer, NEH grants will support 20 programs across the United States on a wide range of subjects including: Cold War era art, music, and film; teaching Shakespeare; women's suffrage in the Americas; and Enlightenment philosophy.

NEH Summer Seminars and Institutes:

  • focus on the study and teaching of significant texts and other resources;
  • provide models of excellent scholarship and teaching;
  • contribute to the intellectual growth of the participants; and
