2016 Teacher Seminar Application Now Open!

The Gilder Lehrman Education Department is pleased to announce that the application for 2016 Teacher Seminars is now open. 

Each summer, Gilder Lehrman offers academically rigorous seminars for K–12 educators and National Park Service interpreters. Held at colleges and historic sites across the US and abroad, Gilder Lehrman’s weeklong seminars offer teachers lectures and discussions with eminent historians, visits to historic sites, and hands-on work with primary sources. Room, board, and tuition are fully paid for public school teachers, and matching funds are available for independent school teachers.

Seminars are highly competitive, and many teachers consider the seminars among the best professional development of their careers.
