Applications are open for 2024 for Texas Public Policy Foundation’s sixth annual Summer Civics Institute! We will be hosting groups of qualified teachers during the week of June 3-7 at the TPPF Headquarters in Austin, Texas.

Teachers from across our great nation will 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 teachers with 30 hours of professional development during a one-week period this summer. The classes will be taught by Dr. Thomas Lindsay of TPPF.

Institute Fellows:

  • will be reimbursed for their travel to and from the Summer Civics Institute;
  • will have their hotel room covered by TPPF on the Monday-Friday of class week;
  • will have their breakfast and lunch provided by TPPF during their stay;
  • will receive a $500 stipend;
  • will receive 30 classroom contact hours for professional development (TEA-approved).
