  2. Second priority will go to new faculty members, i.e., those who are emerging from graduate programs to take up their first teaching posts.
  3. Those who have never attended a seminar sponsored by Sunoikisis will receive third priority.

Seminar participants or their sponsoring institutions will be responsible for the costs of travel to and from the CHS. All participants will receive a stipend of $500 and room and board at the CHS. Visit the Frequently Asked Questions page for more details.

The CHS will stream and record the course development seminars. In addition to completing the seminar application, applicants should also complete the media release form.
