The Mellon Public Scholars program introduces graduate students to the intellectual and practical aspects of public humanities and engaged scholarship. It does so through a two-credit seminar in Spring quarter, faculty mentorship, and a community-based project over the summer. All that is required is an interest in public humanities and enrollment in a Ph.D. or M.F.A. program in the arts, humanities, or humanistic social sciences.
