English PhD candidate Kelly Sauskojus, from the Rhetoric, Writing, and Linguistics division, has been recognized with two prestigious fellowships. She is the winner of a UT Humanities Center Graduate Fellowship for the 2023-2024 year. That fellowship comes with a graduate stipend, a complete release from teaching, and the support of the UTHC community of fellows. She will use this time to complete her dissertation about community organizations working on land and food justice.
Sauskojus also won the national competition to become one of the Humanities Without Walls Career Diversity Fellows in the next cohort. Comprised of 25 PhD students in the humanities and humanistic social sciences, the Fellows represent 20 higher education institutions across the nation. The Fellows will engage in a series of workshop sessions, talks, informational interviews, and site visits, hosted on-campus by the College of Liberal Arts at the University of Minnesota Twin Cities. Her bid for the fellowship was supported by the UTHC and the Department of English.
