Dates: Summer 2023, July 17 - 28, 2023.
Eligibility: Doctoral students in the humanities at US universities. HWW especially encourages students from backgrounds historically underrepresented in higher education to apply.
All applicants must be enrolled full-time in a doctoral program in a humanities or humanistic social science discipline at a university within the United States. Applicants may be at any stage of their doctoral work, but they cannot have received the doctoral degree at the time of the workshop.
International students are eligible to apply but must confirm their registration and eligibility status at their home universities. HWW is not responsible for issuing visa paperwork or advising on taxation policies. Applicants are encouraged to work with their humanities center director for additional information.
Fellowship Award: Each Fellow will receive a $4,000 award. Students must be in residence in Minneapolis for the duration of the workshop and are expected to attend all workshop activities. Lodging and some meals will be provided; fellowship awards are intended to cover transportation costs to/from and around Minneapolis, meals, and other expenses.
Interested doctoral students in the humanities should submit their applications to CAHI by November 1, 2022. Combine and submit all application materials as a single PDF file. Please do not submit your applications directly to HWW or the University of Minnesota.
The application file should contain:
- A narrative (1,000 words maximum; 12pt; single spaced) addressing the following questions. Since your application will be evaluated based on your responses to these questions, please be sure to answer ALL questions.
- What are your career interests or your intended career trajectory? How have your background and experiences impacted your choices?
- How will this workshop help you achieve your goals? What knowledge and skills are you hoping to learn?
- What will you bring to the workshop community? What relevant experiences (personal and professional) will help you to contribute to the workshop cohort?

- How do you plan to incorporate a social justice lens into your daily work in your future career?
- What opportunities (if any) have you had at your campus (or beyond) to explore diverse career opportunities?
- A resume or CV (two pages maximum) that includes relevant professional experiences (including e.g., volunteering, part-time employment, etc.).
- Two confidential letters of recommendation. One letter should be from a faculty member who is familiar with you and your work. The other letter can be from a community partner, colleague, or staff member who is familiar with you and your work.
