Mellon Foundation grants $2.7 million to School of Humanities graduate programs

The UC Irvine School of Humanities has received a $2.7 million grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation to fund a pilot program that transforms graduate education by streamlining the time to degree, providing full funding throughout the degree program, and establishing a teaching and research position of up to two years for all candidates who complete their dissertation in five years. UCI is the first institution to couple a shorter time to degree with postdoctoral appointments to create an integrated program designed to launch humanities scholars successfully into academia and alternative careers.
