Grants of up to $25,000 to West Virginia colleges, universities, regional educational service agencies, and government agencies for the development of humanities seminars for elementary and secondary school teachers. Applicants must contact program staff prior to applying. Seminars will be held during the summer term.

Recently funded teacher institutes focused on writing and an exploration of music and cultures from around the world. Other teacher institutes have taken teachers to Japan, India, and England.

The seminar must offer at least three graduate-level staff development or professional development hours that are eligible to be used toward renewal of a teaching certificate and advance salary classification. The tuition or fees for degree-credit or continuing education hours offered must be waived or offered at a reduced rate from the standard fees.

Seminars must register a minimum of 20 teacher participants. The West Virginia Humanities Council reserves the right to cancel an Institute that fails to meet this requirement.
