Apply for the 2018-19 Public Humanities Exchange (HEX) Program

The Graduate Public Humanities Exchange (HEX) program is a long-running and dynamic program that funds innovative public humanities projects that forge partnerships between community organizations and graduate students.

Each HEX Project builds a partnership with a community group that reflects both the partner’s existing needs and graduate students’ research, interests, and expertise. Along with those partnerships, the HEX Program also fosters a strong cohort among scholars by holding regular workshops and conversations, where students often address both the exciting developments and the difficult tensions that can arise from projects that are both public and academic. Begun in 2005, HEX goes beyond volunteerism and the pure research model to offer graduate students and partners the chance to form mutually rewarding relationships with surprising outcomes.

The application period for the 2018-19 Public Humanites Exchange (HEX) Program is open through Friday, February 2 at 5:00 p.m. Please compile all application materials into a single PDF document and email to by the deadline.
