Summer Institute

Graduate and Continuing Education Credits

Upon successful completion of the Religious Worlds institute, summer scholars will be eligible to receive either three grad­uate credits or three continuing ed­ucation credits from Union Theological Seminary (the equivalent of a semester-length UTS course).

Summer scholars will need to pay UTS fees for these credits, and the NEH does not provide funding for these costs.  The fee for three graduate credits will be $1,920 (a 50% discount from the standard UTS fee of $1,280 per credit), and the fee for three contin­uing ed­ucation credits will be $375.

Please note, however, that you are not required to enroll in the Religious Worlds institute for credit.  These credits are made available, on an optional basis, for the professional devel­opment of summer scholars.  All summer scholars who complete the institute will receive a formal certificate of completion from the National Endowment for the Humanities.
