Graduate Fellowships

Call for Applications: Graduate Fellows in Digital Humanities

Application Deadline: March 31, 2024 (11:59 pm)

The Center for Digital Humanities (CDH) seeks applicants for the Fall 2024 cohort of Graduate Fellows in Digital Humanities.

The CDH Graduate Fellowship welcomes PhD students into the community of Princeton digital humanities researchers and provides the mentorship and support necessary to begin employing computational and data-driven methods in their work. Over the course of the semester, fellows will articulate research questions and identify goals for small-scale, standalone projects or for components of larger projects (e.g. a dissertation). As a cohort, fellows will explore tools, methods, and best practices that will benefit them throughout their careers. No prior technical skills are required, but a familiarity with the landscape of digital humanities, cultural analytics, or data science is a plus.

The program requires attendance at monthly cohort meetings that provide the opportunity to workshop ideas with peers and receive feedback from researchers at the CDH as well as allied campus units like Digital Scholarship (DiScho) and the PUL Makerspace. The meeting format evolves alongside the interests of the group: sometimes there are workshops, or we run through a tutorial, or we discuss a shared line of inquiry that emerges.

The term of the fellowship is one semester; students may reapply for a second term. Fellows should expect to devote c. 3 hours per week to their fellowship activities. The award is $1,000/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 by 11:59 pm on March 31, 2024 with the subject line “Application for CDH Graduate Fellowship.”
