Humanities Cluster -- Diversifying Career Paths for Humanities PhDs
The Texas A&M Humanities Cluster is a partnership between the university and the Council of Graduate Schools (CGS) to provide grant funding that encourages creative thinking and programming to promote career diversity for PhDs in the humanities.
The Cluster offers two funding opportunities for students and faculty.
We will provide awards to support visits by Professionals-in-Residence, who can offer workshops and individual mentoring opportunities for current students.
INTERNSHIP SUPPORT GRANTS
These grants will provide up to $5,000 to support students who accept unpaid or low-paid public service internships. Grantees will be working in one of two areas: grant-writing and resource development or building professional networks. Texas A&M will focus on building professional networks by connecting faculty and administrators from across campus to initiate career conversations and explore opportunities for Ph.D. students in the humanities through workshops, professionals-in-residence programs, and internships. Texas A&M is particularly committed to helping students identify and establish careers where they can put their extensive research-based skills to work serve the public interest.
