The National Endowment for the Humanities sponsors summer institutes for teachers on a wide range of U.S. history topics. Teachers participate in an in-depth study of the topic with scholars and peers. They also receive a stipend for the week.
Zinn Education Project colleagues have alerted us to the institutes listed below. These are not sponsored by the Zinn Education Project, but the descriptions sound great. Applications are due in March. Check them out and spread the word. (And let us know if there are others that you recommend.)

The Long Road from Brown: School Desegregation in Virginia (Richmond, VA)
Asian Americans in New York City: Literature and Film (New York, NY)
