UTEP’s Humanities Coalition project is designed to provide doctoral students in Borderlands History and Rhetoric and Composition with the skills and knowledge to secure resources effectively in their future careers. This project places grant and resource seeking in a framework of career diversity and contributes to building a broader understanding of career options at the institutional and program levels.
