The NU Chicago Humanities Initiative (CHI) enables graduate students in the humanities and humanistic social sciences to explore public-facing scholarship and careers beyond the tenure-track. Through an 8-week internship with an arts, culture or community organization and a weekly seminar, participants will explore the role of the humanities in public life through hands-on, real world practice and interdisciplinary classroom discussion.
The summer 2020 CHI program will run from June 29 - August 21. Applications are due February 20 (priority deadline) or April 20 (regular deadline).
CHI is offered through a partnership between the Center for Civic Engagement, Chicago Field Studies, and The Graduate School, with support from Kaplan Humanities Institute and Northwestern Career Advancement.
