Call for Applications: Graduate Fellows in Digital Humanities - Fall 2019
The Center for Digital Humanities (CDH) seeks applicants for Graduate Fellows in Digital Humanities. Graduate Fellows explore a field of DH research or professional development during their term. No previous experience with DH or specific technical skills are required.
Fellows are expected to be active participants in the life of the CDH by attending events and workshops and reaching out to CDH staff and fellow students as they explore their DH topic. Fellows are strongly encouraged to attend monthly Collaboratory meetings organized by the Graduate Caucus that provide the opportunity to workshop ideas with peers. Fellows will submit a short report of their activities and outcomes at the conclusion of the term.
The term of the Graduate Fellowship in DH is one semester. Fellows should expect to devote approximately 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. Applications must also include a brief endorsement from their DGS (in the case of pre-generals students) or dissertation adviser (in the case of post-generals students).
Please submit application materials, exclusive of endorsement from the DGS/dissertation adviser, as a single PDF to email@example.com by April 15, 2019.
A completed application consists of:
- Application form, indicating your DH subfield interests (download below)
- Letter of application (1 page) describing your research, the aspects of DH that most interest you, and the ways you feel your scholarly, pedagogical, or professional development would benefit from this fellowship
