We provide grants for PhD students to create experiences that develop their professional competencies, obtain new credentials, and fund internships.

Students have taken advantage of grant funding in a variety of ways, including:

  • learning and applying new skills such as mapping technology, coding, design, business management, and audio production
  • obtaining internships
  • applying research or teaching skills in collaborations with community organizations
  • designing and supporting digital humanities projects with faculty members

These experiences, typically undertaken during the summer months, allow students to cultivate their professional identities and explore diverse career paths. Read more about the exciting projects students have pursued below.
