Application for 2024 Spring and Summer Teacher Programs

In spring and summer 2024, we will offer both in-person and online programs for classroom teachers.

Please complete the following application. Fields marked with a red asterisk (*) are required (although some fields will only apply to in-person programs, i.e. dietary and access restrictions).

Please ensure you include a valid email address where we can send important information.

We encourage teachers to apply as soon as possible, as applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis.

Capacity is limited for our in-person programs. Applying to an in-person program does not guarantee your participation. Humanities Texas will contact you by email to let you know if you have been accepted to the program or placed on a waiting list. If you have been accepted to participate, we will send you all necessary details in advance of the program.

For online programs where capacity will not be limited, we will send you program details in advance, including a full schedule and a Zoom link.

Please see the Humanities Texas travel policy for spring and summer for questions regarding travel reimbursement for in-person programs.

Humanities Texas may send a press release about the program to your local paper should you attend. By submitting this application, you authorize Humanities Texas to share your contact information and photograph with members of the press.
