Digital Humanities Graduate Student Summer Fellowships

Please note that the application cycle for summer 2021 fellowships has now passed. The following is provided for information only.

CALL FOR APPLICATIONS: The Research Technology Faculty Advisory Board (FAB), in partnership with the Center for the Humanities and NYU Libraries, invites applications for a series of Digital Humanities Graduate Student Summer Fellowships. Students will need to articulate their own project, which might involve engaging with digital humanities methods as the basis for a dissertation chapter or article, or building a digital public humanities project or exhibit. Project work will take place during Summer 2021, and participants will report on work completed at a Fall 2021 event.

Applicants should submit a 250-word abstract, a 1250-word narrative, and supporting documentation. Proposals will be judged on the merit of the project, its contribution to the applicant’s course of study, and its feasibility in the timeline proposed.

FUNDING: Fellows will receive a taxable stipend of $5,000 for participating in the program, and will be expected to dedicate approximately 300 hours for the fellowship during the summer months of 2021. Fellows must also commit to attending a series of project development workshops during the summer of 2021 as part of their total hours.

ELIGIBILITY: Graduate students in the humanities from all NYU schools, including NYU Global Sites, are eligible. To qualify, they must have completed 16 credits by June 1, 2021, maintain active matriculation at NYU, and have a stated interest in digital humanities.

DEADLINE: Applications must be received by March 7, 2021, 11:59 pm, EST.

APPLICATION INSTRUCTIONS: Completed applications should total no more than 1,250 words, to include 1) a description of the project you intend to pursue, including an intellectual justification of the goals, description of methods to be used, and description of sources; and 2) a biographical statement of applicant’s areas of scholarly and professional interests in the digital humanities, including relevant experience.

Applicants will also be asked to provide the following:

A 250-word abstract describing the project for an interdisciplinary audience.

Current CV.

NYU transcript (official or unofficial copies accepted).
