Next Generation Humanities PhD Consortium

A collaboration between CGS and NEH that will: 1) establish an advisory network of experts for Next Generation Humanities PhD grantees; 2) create a team-based communication platform for grantees; 3) develop benchmarking materials and timelines with each institution; 4) host virtual conversations, presentations, and webinars on relevant topics; 5) offer virtual office hours to coach grantee institutions; 6) provide opportunities for grantees to present at CGS events; 7) co-host Project Directors’ Meetings; 8) document preliminary “lessons learned” at planning grants’ completion; 9) offer suggestions to update guidelines for upcoming deadlines; and 10) evaluate and review the partnership for possible renewal.

This request seeks to establish a working relationship between the Council of Graduate Schools (CGS) with the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) to help administer a rich and supportive environment for grantees of the Next Generation Humanities PhD program. CGS and NEH will work with project directors, university deans, advisors, funders, and other entities to plan and execute high quality collaborative interventions that will support and amplify culture change in humanities doctoral programs across the United States. This culture change will by definition be difficult, since it has significant structural, methodological, and financial implications, among them curricular change, new models for graduate student mentorship, stipends for activities beyond research and teaching, and the possibility of a different dissertation product. To achieve far-reaching results that live up to the promise of the grant program, the intention is to build a strong esprit d’équipe among this first cohort of grantees.
