The Public Humanities Doctoral Fellowships are year-long fellowships that offer advanced doctoral students in the humanities and humanistic social sciences the opportunity to gain public-facing experience at a range of cultural and educational institutions. Students selected for these working fellowships will be able to explore different modes of public engagement and see first-hand how their extensive skills, knowledge, and talents can be applied at such institutions, all while exploring different roles and career options available to PhD graduates.
Fellows work 20 hours a week at one of the sites listed below and receive an additional year of fellowship support equivalent to the GSAS minimum MacCracken stipend and 100% coverage in the NYU comprehensive individual health insurance plan. Fellows participate in mandatory professional development workshops over the course of the academic year.
