Please join us for our next PhD+ Workshop on December 2nd where we will hear from our fist cohort of Public Fellows. These fellowships provide the opportunity for Humanities doctoral students to contribute to research, programming, communications and fundraising at non-profit organizations, cultural institutions, or companies and are meant to allow the students to apply and expand their skills in a non-academic setting while engaged in graduate study.
The 9 fellows below will share with us their summer experiences and will be able to help serve as mentors for those of you who are considering applying for the program going forward.

David Donley, Philosophy (Santa Cruz County Jail)
Kendra Dority, Literature (Public Scholar funded by IHR and UCHRI and associated with the UC Davis Mellon-funded program)
