The Woodrow Wilson Practicum Grants: Humanities at Work

Mission: The humanities provide what every community and organization requires: values, ideals, and ideas all learned from the vast wealth of human experiences. In 1999 the Woodrow Wilson Foundation launched its Humanities at Work Practicum Grants to achieve two purposes. First, by bringing the broad perspectives and flexible skills of humanist scholars to civic, cultural, and corporate settings, the Foundation helped demonstrate the far-reaching applicability of doctoral training in the humanities. Second, Woodrow Wilson sought, through the program, to challenge Ph.D. students in the humanities to explore career opportunities beyond the academy by engaging more fully in their communities. More than 100 students have received Practicum Grants
