NEH-funded institutes are professional development programs that convene higher education faculty from across the nation in order to deepen and enrich their understanding of a variety of topics in the humanities and enrich their capacity for effective scholarship and teaching.

Each institute allows 25 to 36 participants to study a humanities topic with a team of experienced scholars. Project leaders and participants mutually explore connections between scholarship and teaching, and some time is provided for work on individual or collaborative projects.

The Middle Eastern Christianity NEH Summer Institute has been made possible in part by a major grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities: Democracy demands wisdom.
