NEH Summer Institute: World War I in the Middle East

July 10, 2022

World War I in the Middle East is an NEH-funded two-week residential Summer Institute for 28 K-12 educators. This competitive and rewarding professional development will be held July 10-22, 2022, at the National WWI Museum and Memorial in Kansas City, Missouri.

The Institute is designed to be academic, interactive and practical, covering three major objectives:

  1. Facilitating participants’ academic growth as they engage in an in-depth exploration of the Middle East during World War I
  2. Bringing together K-12th grade educators with their counterparts, providing the framework for an exchange of ideas and discussion of their teaching implications
  3. Developing curricula and presentations to bring participants’ new knowledge into U.S. classrooms and to share them with other educators.

For information and application:

There is a $2200 stipend for use towards housing, food, and transportation, half of which will be provided at the beginning of the program, and half at the end.
