Kristin McCarty Selected for 2019 Mellon Public Scholars Award

The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation has awarded the UC Davis Humanities Institute $400,000 to inaugurate the Public Scholars Program, which will support community-engaged scholarship and provide experience for graduate students interested in diverse careers. The Mellon Public Scholars program introduces graduate students to the intellectual and practical aspects of identifying, addressing, and collaborating with members of a public through their scholarship. In 2019, Kristin will work with the California Arts Council (CAC) to assist in developing a research framework that provides an updated portrait of arts and culture organizations across the state of California.
