The Mellon Grant will also allow Yale to build on an already existing program for post-graduate fellows in the humanities. The program provides recent doctoral degree graduates with new opportunities to teach at the undergraduate level and to broaden their teaching portfolios to include a diverse palette of humanities courses. In addition to enhancing the future employment prospects of the Ph.D. graduates, the program will further enrich the robust community of humanities scholars at Yale.Previously: The Adjunct Project.
Yale is also considering ways of extending the resources afforded by the Mellon grant by developing partnerships with nearby universities and liberal arts colleges. Among strategies under consideration is a cost-sharing plan whereby Yale would pay part of the salaries for recent Yale Ph.D.s to teach at small liberal arts colleges and other universities within a a two-hour driving radius of New Haven. With this pooled funding, Yale could increase the number of post-doctoral fellows it supports, and the fellows themselves would find new teaching opportunities and gain pedagogical experience.
