Rural Humanities now accepting applications for Summer Practicum

Thu, 02/27/2020

The Rural Humanities Summer Practicum is being offered to allow graduate students and advanced undergraduates to deepen public and engaged humanities projects in our local region that they have begun or are adequately prepared to undertake during an intensive 6-week program. 

With the practicum, the Rural Humanities Initiative aims to make training in public humanities and community-centered academic work a central part of student education and career opportunities today.

The 2020 Summer Practicum will be led by Anna Sims Bartel, Associate Director of the Office of Engagement Initiatives, and Shirley Samuels, professor of English.

Participants in the Summer Practicum will each be awarded a grant of up to $8,000 for their work, $6,000 of which is set aside for the participant's living expenses during the 6-week program. See our Application Guidelines for more information and instructions. Applications are due Monday, April 6 at 4pm.
