Doctoral Certificate in Collaborative Humanities (Fall Cycle)

Funding Opportunity

Doctoral students can enroll in the certificate program at any point in time through two admission cycles each academic year, with final deadlines in the fall and spring. Admissions are reviewed on a rolling basis.

Students interested in participating in the Project Development Workshop, taught each spring, must seek admission by the fall of the same academic year at the latest. Applicants for the Cogut Collaborative Humanities Fellowship must also enroll in the certificate program before or at the same time as they submit the fellowship application materials in the spring. 



Brown University doctoral students are eligible to apply. The completion of two seminars in the HMAN 24*** series is a prerequisite to apply for enrollment in the certificate and the Project Development Workshop.


The fall application deadline is October 18, 2024, 11:59 p.m. Students interested in participating in the Spring 2025 Project Development Workshop must either be admitted or seek admission into the certificate program by that date. 

Application materials are submitted through UFunds: select "Doctoral Certificates," then "Collaborative Humanities." The application requires:

  1. A 250- to 300-word response to the question "What role do you see the collaborative humanities performing in your doctoral training, scholarly work, and professional development?"
  2. A timeline of collaborative humanities courses completed or to be completed for the Doctoral Certificate in Collaborative Humanities.
  3. A C.V.
  4. Brief online forms to be completed by the Director of Graduate Studies and the Ph.D. advisor confirming that the applicant's good standing and the department's support. We do not require a letter of recommendation for admission into the certificate program.
