The CDH invites applications to be part of our inaugural cohort of Graduate Fellows in Digital Humanities.
Graduate Fellowships are an ideal way to take a deep dive into an aspect of Digital Humanities that you've been curious about, but not had a chance to focus on. 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, 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. The CDH expects to host up to five fellows per 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). Successful applicants will begin their term in Spring 2019.
Please submit application materials, exclusive of endorsement from the DGS/dissertation adviser, as a single PDF to Dr. Rebecca Munson (firstname.lastname@example.org), the CDH’s Project and Education Coordinator, no later than November 15, 2018.
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
- Adviser or DGS endorsement (to be sent separately, via email)
Any questions can be directed to Dr. Munson. Read more about the opportunities available to graduate students through the CDH here.
