Graduate Support

The School of Humanities has joined and actively participates in national humanities organizations that highlight innovative humanities research and transformations in humanities education. One such organization is the National Humanities Center. Each summer, we award a select number of graduate students a chance to travel to the NHC in North Carolina, where they learn effective instructional strategies that emphasize accessibility and inclusivity in curriculum planning and where they engage with public scholarship and discuss humanities-focused careers paths inside and outside the academy. Your support allows us to provide our talented PhD students with this invaluable opportunity to network and learn from a diverse cohort of humanities professionals from different universities and disciplines.

Your support furthers our ambitions to recruit the best young scholars to our doctoral programs in Art History, English, History, Philosophy and Religion. It also gives us the resources we need to expand our training, provide interdisciplinary learning and career diversity preparation, and create additional curricular initiatives and credentials. If you have questions about giving, please contact Emily Stein at or 713-348-3424.
