Humanities Opportunities for Educators and K-12 Students
Community Project Grants
New Hampshire Humanities funds humanities-based workshops for educators through our Community Project Grants.
HYPE (Hosting Young Philosophy Enthusiasts)
We undertake special initiatives with partner organizations, including sponsorship of the acclaimed annual HYPE (Hosting Young Philosophy Enthusiasts) conference that draws more than 1,400 students to a statewide Socratic dialogue called HYPE Day to encourage young people to become more critical thinkers and respectful communicators.

We are a partner in the Constitutionally Speaking project founded by Justice David Souter and providing resources on the teaching of civics to New Hampshire educators. Access those resources on the Constitutionally Speaking website.
Teacher Institutes & Workshops
Summer institutes and workshops funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities support faculty development programs in the humanities for school teachers and for college and university teachers. NEH summer seminars and institutes may be as short as two weeks or as long as five weeks. NEH summer seminars and institutes extend and deepen knowledge and understanding of the humanities by focusing on significant topics and texts, contribute to the intellectual vitality and professional development of participants, build communities of inquiry and provide models of civility and excellent scholarship and teaching, and link teaching and research in the humanities. Learn more on the NEH's website.
