Texas Public Policy Foundation is excited to announce our third annual Summer Civics Institute for Middle School and High School Teachers! We will be hosting groups of teachers at our office in Austin on June 7-11 and June 21-25.

We invite qualified teachers from across our great nation to participate in a week-long classroom session that hopes to enhance understanding of the fundamental political, intellectual, and moral principles that informed the construction of the American founding.

This highly competitive, TEA-approved Summer Civics Institute class will provide 30 hours of professional development during a one-week period this summer. The classes will take place at the Foundation’s headquarters located in Austin Texas.

Institute Fellows:

  • will be reimbursed for their travel to and from Austin;
  • will be housed in Austin by TPPF during the week of class;
  • will have their meals provided for them during their stay.
  • will receive a $500 stipend — $250 upon completion of the course, and $250 upon completion of post-course outcomes assessment
  • The week of classes will total 30 classroom contact hours for professional development. The Institute is TEA-approved.

Interested parties can fill out our online application by April 16, 2021 and direct any questions to civicsinstitute@texaspolicy.com.
