Applications are open for 2023 for Texas Public Policy Foundation’s fifth annual Summer Civics Institute! We will be hosting groups of qualified teachers during the weeks of June 5-9 and June 12-16 at TPPF Headquarters in Austin Texas and at the University of Dallas in Irving Texas for the week of June 19-23.

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. Matthew Post from the University of Dallas and will take place in Austin and in Dallas.

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).
