Ph.D. Students

As we re-imagine the Humanities Ph.D., Humanities Engage makes funding opportunities available for graduate students in the Arts and Humanities (to include History).

  • For examples of organizations that have previously hosted students, please see the Humanities Engage Funding Awardees page.
  • Applicants are strongly encouraged to schedule a consultation with Dr. Marques Redd, Senior Director for Graduate Advising and Engagement for the Humanities (marques.redd@pitt.edu), to discuss the viability of their prospective project. Applicants considering projects with organizations in the Pittsburgh region are requested to contact Dr. Redd first so that he can help orient them to pre-existing contacts and liaise appropriately.
