Apply to be a Digital Scholarship Graduate Fellow

Call for Applicants: Fall 2019 – Spring 2020

We are currently seeking applications for a small cohort of Digital Scholarship Graduate Fellows for the 2019-20 academic year.

The Digital Scholarship Program is offering a new opportunity for graduate students to develop digital competencies, learn about the field of digital scholarship, and experiment with digital tools to support their research and teaching. As a Digital Scholarship Graduate Fellow you will be introduced to important digital scholarship skills and topics such as the command line, html/css, GitHub/markdown, project management, digital pedagogy, data management and metadata, GIS, digital archives and exhibitions, AI/machine learning, 3D and immersive digital scholarship, and more.

During the fall semester, you will be supported by a stipend of $1,000 to participate in the seminar, develop skills in digital scholarship, and discover digital scholarship research in your field. Each fellow will create a professional website, choose an area of specialization to develop, and craft a presentation for the community. Fellows will be required to attend bi-weekly meetings and present their work at the Digital Scholarship Research Fair.

The fall semester fellowship will prepare you to be hired as a Digital Scholarship Graduate Assistant (DSGA) in the spring semester. DSGAs continue to develop their skills by applying them to faculty and staff led digital scholarship projects, supporting digital scholarship in the classroom, creating and teaching workshops for undergraduate and graduate students, and a variety of other activities. DSGAs are paid $18/hour for up to eight hours of work each week.
