Student Experience Grants
We will support PhD students to undertake co-curricular and extra-curricular experiences that cultivate
new competencies or secure new credentials, develop their abilities to be excellent teachers, have a
community/public engagement aspect, or otherwise augment the student’s professional development. Use of summer months will be expressly encouraged.
- A grant providing summer support for a graduate student to work with a non-profit organization coordinating data collection for their strategic planning process.
- A team of advanced graduate students collaborate with a faculty member who maintains an ongoing digital humanities project.
- Grant support for graduate student credentialing in fields like instructional design, project management, finance, and business management during the summer months.
- Support for participation in unpaid or low-paying internships with publicly facing organizations.
- Support for PhD students to teach and conduct research in “collaborative community” projects. These projects should be conceived to incorporate public scholarship or publicly facing scholarship, to link to the undergraduate curriculum, and to promote the dissemination of scholarship beyond the academy.
