Call For Applications
Funding must be tied to travel, either to present a paper at an important academic conference or for a short research trip.
The Center expects to be able to award between $500-1000 per year to applicants, on a competitive rolling basis.
Applicants should submit the following to the Center, ℅ the interim director, Dr. Simmons:
– a one-page letter of application explaining the significance of the travel to their graduate studies; this letter should also explain how the student’s project involves Digital Humanities.
– a copy of the conference paper proposal, abstract, or paper itself - or in the case of a research trip, an explanation of the significance of the materials at the archive for the student’s studies.
– an up-to-date CV
Student applicants should also ask their graduate advisors to send a short email of recommendation on their behalf to the Center, also ℅ Dr. Simmons.
Applications should be submitted with as much lead time prior to the planned trip as possible, ideally 3-6 months. Depending on the number of applications, we expect to select applications for funding on two or three occasions each year.
