The CDH offers travel grants for Princeton graduate students to attend Digital Humanities workshops, summer schools, institutes or other training sessions. Travel Grants are intended to give graduate students the opportunity to expand their technical or methodological skills, receive professional development training, and gain experience with the DH community.
Travel Grants may be used to cover the costs of travel, lodging, or registration, up to $1,000. Applicants must also apply for any fellowships and bursaries offered by the host organization.
Applicants should specify the course or workshop they plan to attend, state what they intend to gain from the experience, and indicate its relevance to their course of study or professional plans. Please append a budget showing the anticipated travel costs and indicate other funds received and other sources applied to. Applications should be no longer than 750 words.
Most conferences and schools for DH happen during the summer months. They include, but are not limited to:
- Digital Resources and Methods (DREAM), University of Pennsylvania
- Humanities Intensive Learning and Teaching (HILT) (cancelled in 2021)
- Digital Humanities Summer Institute (DHSI)
- Digital Humanities at Oxford Summer School, Oxford, UK
- European Summer University in Digital Humanities, Leipzig, Germany
- DH2021, Tokyo, Japan (delayed to 2022)
Applications are accepted on a quarterly basis. Deadlines for 2020 are March 2, June 1, September 1, and December 1. Training must take place within six months of the application date. Additionally, applications must be submitted a minimum of one month before the event for which the funding is requested. You may expect a decision within four weeks of the deadline. Applicants must be enrolled Princeton University students at the time the training takes place. There is a limit to one grant per year per applicant. Payments are administered through SAFE.
Applications should be sent as PDF attachments to firstname.lastname@example.org.
