9 PhD students were named 2024 Humanities Engage fellows

The Cathedral of Learning

Nine PhD students at the University of Pittsburgh have received research funding from the Pitt’s Humanities Engage project, which is committed to broadening and deepening the intellectual and professional development of all PhD candidates.

Six of the recipients pitched their own Summer Immersive Fellowships, which offer the chance to gain experiences with host organizations in collaborative, mission-focused project work drawing on their high-level skills as researchers and writers. They will be co-mentored by the host organization supervisors, a cohort of faculty mentors and the senior director for graduate advising and engagement for the humanities.

This year’s Summer Immersive Fellowship recipients are:

  • Juwon Adenuga (Music)
  • Monica Daniels (History of Art and Architecture)
  • Luis Delgado (Music)
  • Frederick Miller (Theatre Arts)
  • Senjuti Mukherjee (Film and Media Studies)
  • Ernest Owusu-Poku (Music)

The two-term Immersive Dissertation Research Fellowship supports Humanities dissertation projects that involve substantial professional development and will likely result in dissertation formats other than the conventional proto-monograph. The fellowship carries a competitive stipend, a tuition scholarship and professional development funds for its duration.

The Immersive Dissertation Research Fellowship awardees are:

  • Rahul Kumar (Film and Media Studies)
  • Apala Kundu (English)
  • Warner Sabio (Music)
