Humanities Without Walls

Humanities Without Walls (HWW) is a consortium of humanities centers and institutes at 16 major research universities throughout the US Midwest and beyond.

In summer 2021, HWW is holding its first online, national, virtual summer workshop for doctoral students interested in learning about careers outside of the academy and/or the tenure track system. Through a series of workshops, talks, and virtual field trips, participants will learn how to leverage their skills and training towards careers in the private sector, the nonprofit world, arts administration, public media and many other fields. All aspects of the workshop will be remote, virtual, and online in nature.

HWW invites applications from doctoral students pursuing degrees in the humanities and humanistic social sciences to participate in this three-week, virtual summer workshop.  Selection for the workshop includes a $5,000 fellowship.

This is a limited-submission application. Eligible doctoral students must be nominated for this workshop and fellowship by their home institution and only one nomination may be made to HWW by each university.
