Rutgers University / New Jersey Council for the Humanities Partnership - Graduate Fellowship in the Public Humanities

The Office of the Senior Vice-President for Academic Affairs at Rutgers announces the inaugural Rutgers University/New Jersey Council for the Humanities Graduate Fellowship in the Public Humanities.

Undertaken as a cooperative effort between Rutgers and NJCH, the fellowship seeks strategic ways to bring the academic humanities disciplines in closer connection with civic life in contemporary New Jersey society.

In this first phase of our partnership, we aim to encourage dialogue between graduate students and community organizations. We invite applications from graduate students in Humanities and Humanities-related disciplines throughout Rutgers, who have an established or nascent interest in reaching beyond traditional academic audiences. Leading applicants will be paired with nonprofit organizations that share a vital interest in exploring the underlying humanistic values and goals of their community efforts. The fellowship will be structured as a funded residency (5-10wk) that fits the schedules of students and organizations. The partnering process will design specific work products that serve the academic trajectory of the Rutgers graduate students as well as the hosting organizations.

This Public Fellows Program is sponsored through the Office of the Senior Vice-President of Academic Affairs, in partnership with New Jersey Council for the Humanities (NJCH), and the Humanities Pathways Working Group on Doctoral Education and the Public Sphere.
