Curated Immersive Summer Fellowships in Pittsburgh

Summer immersives provide Ph.D. students with the opportunity to gain experiences with host organizations in collaborative, mission-focused project work drawing on their high-level skills as researchers and writers. Co-mentored by the host organization supervisor and the Senior Director for Graduate Advising and Engagement for the Humanities, they broaden and deepen their academic and professional development in preparation for high-impact careers within and beyond the academy. See the summer 2020 cohort flyer.

Each summer, Humanities Engage will collaborate with local organizations that will host Ph.D. students in curated immersive fellowships.
