1. Participants in Folger Institute Seminars, the Folger Undergraduate Seminar, and/or the NEH Teaching Shakespeare Institute.


To apply: Letters submitted for admission into a Folger-sponsored program will be accepted for reading privileges. After one year, those who are full-time faculty, PhDs, and PhD candidates are automatically renewable.  Others must provide a letter or email to the Reader Registrar updating their research project.  A letter from an advisor or department chair may also be requested.
