Call for Applications: Graduate Fellows in Digital Humanities
Application Deadline: October 16, 2023 (11:59 pm)
The Center for Digital Humanities (CDH) seeks applicants for the Spring 2024 cohort of Graduate Fellows in Digital Humanities.
The CDH Graduate Fellows program is designed to welcome graduate students into the community of Princeton DH researchers and introduce them to the broader landscape of DH. Over the course of the semester fellows will articulate research questions and identify goals for small-scale projects or components of larger projects (e.g. a dissertation). As a cohort, fellows will explore digital tools and methods that will benefit them over the course of their graduate careers. No previous experience with DH or technical skills are required.
The program requires monthly cohort meetings (4) that provide the opportunity to workshop ideas with peers and contribute to building a DH grad community. There is no formal course of instruction, though fellows are encouraged to reach out to each other and campus partners as they explore their interests. The term of the fellowship is one semester; students may hold fellowships for up to two terms. Fellows should expect to devote ~3 hours per week to their fellowship activities. The award is $750/semester.
Applicants must be enrolled students, from any department and at any stage of their graduate career (including DCE). Please note that visiting students are not eligible. Applicants are advised to seek the support of their Director of Graduate Studies in advance of application; upon acceptance to the program formal DGS approval will be requested.
Please submit application materials as a single PDF to firstname.lastname@example.org by 11:59 pm on October 16, 2023 with the subject line “Application for CDH Graduate Fellowship.”
A completed application consists of:
- Letter of application (1-2 pages, 500-750 words) describing your research, the aspects of DH that most interest you, and the ways you feel your scholarship would benefit from this fellowship. Please make sure to include your home department, year in your graduate program, and dissertation title or research field.
