We encourage teachers to apply as soon as possible, as applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis. In order to attend the online programs and receive CPE credit, you must fill out the application.

  • For most online programs, we will be able to accommodate all applicants and will send registration information about each program, including a full schedule and Zoom links, in advance of the start date. We will contact you directly if for any reason we cannot accommodate you for the program.
  • However, we will limit the number of participants in both sessions of Teaching with Documents from the National Archives due to the institute’s interactive schedule. Applying for this institute does not guarantee your participation. We will invite applicants to attend and will maintain a waitlist. If you are invited to attend, you must confirm your participation in the program. Priority consideration will be given to early-career applicants who teach in low-performing districts or schools.

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.
