The deadline for several UCHRI grants is Monday, March 11, 2019, at 11:59pm. Please note that we have migrated our grants management system from FastApps to Submittable, and have extended our deadlines by a week to accommodate the transition.

Only Faculty are eligible for this grant, fellowship, or residency.

The Graduate Student Professionalization Workshop Grant is intended for faculty interested in addressing gaps in the training graduate students receive for career pathways outside the tenure track, and who want to propose innovative models for providing professional training not currently included in most departmental curricula. According to the NSF, roughly 52% of humanities PhDs have tenure track job commitments at the time of graduation. This grant represents a learning opportunity for faculty and graduate students alike, moving departmental cultures towards better understandings of career pathways that nearly half of humanities PhDs might rewardingly pursue. Proposals must involve collaborative partnerships between humanistic units of at least three UC campuses.

Eligible Applicants: UC Ladder Rank Faculty

Maximum Award: Up to $10,000

Prospective faculty organizers must apply online via UCHRI’s FastApps system.
