For the ninth time, Crow Canyon Archaeological Center has been selected as a recipient of the National Endowment for Humanities Grant Award for 2020.
The NEH Landmarks of American History and Culture Workshop for Teachers: Mesa Verde National Park and Pueblo Indian History project between Crow Canyon and NEH helps Crow Canyon continue to fulfill its mission by serving the field of archaeology.
For one week, 36 K-12 teachers will take residence at Crow Canyon Archaeological Center as they learn different multicultural and historic perspectives from native scholars and professional archaeologists. Offered twice during the summer, the project is tuition-free and awards participants with a stipend to cover expenses while in the program.
The program will also provide educators with new tools to take back to their classrooms.
In order to qualify for the program, applicants must be a K-12 educator or administrator, a United States citizen or resident and submit a completed application including a résumé and references.
Applicants may apply for both programs, but may only participate in one. Applications must be postmarked by March 1, 2020. Successful applicants will be notified by March 27, 2020. The 2020 program will take place June 14-20 and July 5-11.
