The Graduate Student Professionalization Workshop Grant is intended for faculty interested in addressing gaps in the training that 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 National Science Foundation (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 toward 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.
