Applications for the 2021 Advanced Seminar, which is January 16 – 18, 2021, are going out shortly. The program is scheduled to be at the Hilton Newark Airport. We should have our scholars confirmed shortly. Since we do not know what January 2021 will bring, we are making the following changes to the Advanced Seminar.
If you are interested in attending, please let Stanlee know at [email protected]. Remember, letting Stanlee know you are interested does not reserve your spot in the program.
The dates for the 2021 Summer Institute for Teachers are Saturday, June 19 to Thursday, June 24, 2021. The teachers and center staff who were scheduled to come to the 2020 Summer Institute are automatically in the 2021 program. Therefore we will not be accepting new applications for the 2021 program. While we are reaching out to each teacher who was to participate in the 2020 program to confirm their participation in the 2021 program, if you know if someone will not be able to participate in the 2021 program, please let Stanlee know as soon as possible. We are not asking for participant fees to be paid until May 2021 and we ask participants not to make travel plans until the end of May, beginning of June 2021.
The 2021 European Study Program will be to Germany and Poland. Professor Robert Jan van Pelt will be our scholar. We have reserved spots for those Lerner Fellows who had already signed up for the 2020 program. If you are interested in participating in the 2021 European Study Program and you are not already on the list, please let Stanlee know. The dates of the European Study Program will be announced shortly.
Please do let us know how you are doing and consider writing a piece for the Alfred Lerner Fellows eNewsletter.
