The Connected PhD supports faculty to innovate curriculum that prepares graduate students for diverse career paths and creates professional and skill-building opportunities for graduate students. Faculty must be in Mellon-affiliated programs (Anthropology, English, History, Musicology, Music Composition and Theory, Near Eastern and Judaic Studies (NEJS), Politics, and Sociology) or create curricular projects that benefit students in Mellon-affiliated programs. Faculty have the opportunity to apply for funding for two types of proposals: course development and program innovation. 

We are no longer accepting faculty grant applications directly. If you have an idea for a project, please email connectedphd@brandeis.edu rather than submitting an application form.
