Humanities in Place Industry Engagement Scholarship

Humanities in Place Engagement Scholarships (HiPES) offer students the opportunity to work with industry partners to undertake research that will equip them with future knowledge and skills.

In 2021, the School of Humanities in the College of Arts, Law and Education (CALE) is partnering with Tasmanian businesses and services to create projects that will push students to the edge of their learning. HiPES seeks to match Humanities students with exciting projects in industries such as public history, architecture, tourism and small business. The successful applicants will have access to materials and expertise that will develop their academic and professional capabilities. The HiPES Program prepares graduates for applied research in the Humanities and equips them to apply their research skills to industry.

With the support of a UTAS Humanities supervisor and the partner institution, each student will complete a selected research project. Research projects for 2021 will be announced in mid-October. The academic output will depend on the nature of the project and the student’s area of academic specialisation, but typically will comprise a written Honours thesis, or a creative piece with an exegesis. Each student will also create an agreed industry output for the use of the partner organisation. Previous projects have produced blog entries and short stories; other possibilities are educational materials, a podcast, or an online exhibition. The details of these contributions will be decided between the student, supervisor, and partner organisation.
