The Cullman Center Institute for Teachers offers two distinct programs for professional development that give teachers an opportunity to enrich their understanding of history and literature and to learn about doing research in one of the world's great libraries. The Institute is located in The New York Public Library's landmark building on Fifth Avenue at 42nd Street.
The Cullman Center Spring and Summer Seminars are limited to 15 participants each. All educators are welcome to apply; but we give priority to New York City public middle and high school English and history teachers, librarians and administrators.
We offer three week-long courses led by outstanding creative writers and scholars who were or are fellows at the Cullman Center for Scholars and Writers. During each seminar week teachers also learn about the extraordinary resources of the Library, and are given time to do their own writing and research. Summer Seminars begin at 9am and end at 5pm.
If you attended a Summer Seminar in 2008 or before, you are eligible to apply again. The deadline to apply is Monday April 11, 2011.
Amenities provided for Summer Seminar participants include:
A $300 stipend
All required books and course materials
A private o?ce with networked computer
The possibility for graduate credit (via Adams College)
Breakfasts and lunches
