Teacher Institute grants are available to colleges, universities and the West Virginia Department of Education to develop summer seminars on humanities topics for secondary and elementary teachers. See About Our Grants for a definition of the humanities.
The seminar must offer at least three graduate-level staff development or professional development hours that are eligible to be used toward renewal of a teaching certificate and advance salary classification. The tuition or fees for degree-credit or continuing education hours offered must be waived or offered at a reduced rate from the standard fees.
Seminars must register a minimum of 20 teacher participants. The West Virginia Humanities Council reserves the right to cancel an Institute that fails to meet this requirement.
