Graduate Public Humanities Experiential Learning Partnerships (Host Institution: Rutgers University-New Brunswick)


ACLS Sustaining Public Engagement Grants




The Division of Humanities at Rutgers School of Arts and Sciences supports collaborative experiential learning opportunities between humanities graduate students and public humanities organizations in the form of summer internships. Students receive a stipend compensating them for their contributions to the organization’s work, while organizations receive a stipend compensating them for supervising and mentoring students. In addition to sustaining a network of public humanities engagement in our region, this program benefits the university by helping us carry out our mission of pursuing scholarship that supports our communities, provides students with valuable professional training, and provides organizations with labor and funding for mentorship. Collaborators on this project to date have included: New Jersey Council for the Humanities, Rikers Public Memory Project, coLAB Arts, Rutgers Initiative for the Book, Rutgers University Press, Princeton University Press, Regional Plan Association, Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media, and the American Philosophical Society’s Center for Digital Scholarship.
