The workshop on African Americans in Massachusetts: From Slavery to Today is designed primarily for classroom teachers and librarians in public, private, parochial, and charter schools, as well as home schooling parents. Other K-12 school personnel, including administrators, substitute teachers, and classroom professionals, are eligible to participate, subject to available space.

Teachers at schools in the United States or its territorial possessions or Americans teaching in foreign schools where at least 50 percent of the students are American nationals are eligible for this program. Applicants must be United States citizens, residents of US jurisdictions, or foreign nationals who have been residing in the United States or its territories for at least the three years immediately preceding the application deadline. Foreign nationals teaching abroad at non-US chartered institutions are not eligible to apply. Individuals may not apply to study with a Landmarks Director who is a family member.

All information regarding the application process can be found here. The workshop committee must receive all of these materials for you to be considered eligible:

  • Online Cover Sheet found here.
  • Short biography or resume
  • One-page essay
  • Letter of recommendation from your principal or department head.

New this year: An individual may apply to up to two NEH summer projects in any one year (this includes Landmarks workshops, seminars, or institutes), but may participate in only one.
