Interested in a career outside academics?

Check out the “Humanities without Wall” site here ! They are offering the following:

“We invite applications for fellowships from pre-doctoral students to participate in a three-week intensive, residential summer workshop for individuals who are working towards but have not yet received a PhD in a humanities discipline, and who are considering careers outside the academy and/or the tenure-track university system. The summer workshop will instruct students in the various ways they can leverage their pre- existing and developing skill sets towards the pursuit of careers in the public humanities and the private sector (also sometimes referred to as “alt-ac” careers). Familiarity with the vital connections between academic and public worlds can also enrich traditional scholarly endeavors.”

*** Fellowship awards available!
