Support the career development of PhDs in the humanities and social sciences by becoming a sponsor.
Your financial support allows us to provide ImaginePhD without charge to PhD students and postdoctoral scholars in the humanities and social sciences. Your institution’s support is also used for continued site development and sustainability, user experience testing, and online and in-person training opportunities.
Institutions sponsoring at the Platinum, Gold, and Silver levels will have their organization’s logo permanently featured on the site in recognition of your institution’s commitment to assisting humanities and social sciences PhDs in achieving their career aspirations. Your institution will also receive an annual report of site use for the first three years after the initial sponsorship.
Sponsors at the Bronze level will have their organization’s logo permanently featured on the site in recognition of your institution’s commitment to assisting humanities and social sciences PhDs in achieving their career aspirations.
We value all sponsorship and will include mention of those who sponsor below the Bronze level. Institutions may also elect to sponsor over a number years to increase their level of support and advance in their sponsorship level.
Thank you to these PhD granting institutions and professional organizations for supporting the career development of PhD students in the humanities & social sciences with the ImaginePhD project.
The creators of the ImaginePhD project are members of an ad hoc committee under the auspices of the Graduate Career Consortium (GCC). Over 80 GCC members (representing 56 academic institutions and professional organizations) have contributed effort to this nationwide project.
Following a similar process that resulted in the creation of the myIDP online career tool for STEM fields, the ImaginePhD team engaged “experts” to complete surveys to gather data to match skills and interests to sixteen job families. To determine the appropriate experts sample size and make-up, Professor Fred Oswald, PhD, Industrial/Organizational Psychology, Rice University, was consulted. Based on his recommendations, the ImaginePhD team identified 30 experts whose qualifications included having been in their role for 5 years or more, having experience providing career advising to PhDs in the humanities and social sciences for a broad array of careers, or were members of appropriate professional societies or organizations, or were themselves PhDs from the humanities or social sciences in a variety of careers.
