Public Humanities Initiative Doctoral FELLOWSHIP Opportunities
Humanities PhD students will be invited to apply for a year-long Public Humanities Doctoral Fellowship, which entails working up to 20 hours per week at a public-facing institution. Priority will be given to students in their penultimate year of doctoral work so that the fellowship year coincides with their final year of doctoral work. Students in their final year will receive an additional year of fellowship support. Fellowships include a stipend that reflects the GSAS minimum MacCracken stipend and 100% coverage in the NYU comprehensive health insurance plan for an individual.
Participation in the Public Humanities courses and workshop components of the Initiative is not required to apply for the fellowship. Yet for students who have participated in the two other components of the Initiative, the fellowship will afford the opportunity to deploy the skills and knowledge developed in the courses and workshops. The fellowship provides students with significant professional experience and substantial personal contacts, considerably enhancing their prospects for employment beyond the academy.
Students selected for fellowships will participate at a cohort-building showcase event to be held midway through the fellowship year.
