The Digital Humanities Summer Institute (DHSI; main website: dhsi.org) will be held on June 4-8 and 11-15, 2018 at the University of Victoria, offering different courses during each week-long session.

The Initiative for Digital Humanities, Media, and Culture (IDHMC) is offering fellowships for Texas A&M University (TAMU) applicants, with preference given to early career scholars (including graduate students) and proposals that clearly demonstrate the role that the DHSI course will play in their research. DH Graduate Certificate students are encouraged to incorporate DHSI training into independent studies with TAMU faculty.

Graduate student applicants are required to apply for a sponsored DHSI scholarship (or other bursary award) to be eligible for a $500-$600 IDHMC Fellowship. (Only proof of a DHSI scholarship application submission is required.) Graduate students receiving IDHMC fellowships will be required to obtain $250 in matching funds from their department. For DHSI Scholarship and Bursary Application information see Sponsored DHSI Scholarships

Faculty/Staff applicants are eligible to receive free tuition for one course per applicant.

To apply for this opportunity:

  1. Please write a 250-500 word statement including: a) which course you wish to take at DHSI. (Course and registration information can be found at DHSI Courses. Since there are two week long sessions, please look at the course offerings carefully to be sure you can travel during the week your course is offered.) and b) How this course will benefit your scholarship or digital project(s).
  2. (Graduate Students only) Attach a copy of your DHSI Scholarship Application (or other bursary application).

Email the statement, with your name, department, and contact information, and a copy of your DHSI scholarship application, if applicable, to idhmc@tamu.edu with DHSI2018 as the subject.

Application deadline is Wednesday, October 4, 2017
