Are you a PhD student interested in using your skills and in gaining work experience in nonprofit, cultural, or community settings?

The Public Humanities Graduate Fellows Program trains students to become public humanists through course work and paid internships with local organizations, including Direct Relief, the Foodbank of Santa Barbara County, the Museum of Contemporary Art Santa Barbara, and the Santa Barbara Trust for Historic Preservation.

Internships are positions established by the IHC with local cultural, governmental, and non-profit organizations. The internship host organizations interview and select applicants for positions and provide mentoring and oversight. Interns receive a $5,000 stipend for 200 hours of work (generally 20 hours per week for ten weeks or ten hours per week for 20 weeks). Interns will also receive four units of academic credit.
