Summary:We propose to organize a summer school for graduate students and new postdocs in high energy solar physics. The material presented will cover the instrumentation related to, the observations of, and the associated fundamental physics of solar flares, coronal mass ejections, and solar energetic particles. The school will be held in New Hampshire from 14 ~ 24 June, 2006, immediately prior to the American Astronomical Society Solar Physics Division meeting at the same location. We request funding to support the travel and per diem costs for some 45 students and ~10 faculty, and to cover the publication of refereed versions of the lectures in a single volume. This Solar Physics Division of the American Astronomical Society has approved this event as its sponsored summer school for 2006. Financial support from NSF has also been promised.
