The Digital Humanities Lab is pleased to announce a limited number of $500 Digital Humanities Training Scholarships. Yale undergraduates, graduate students, and librarians are eligible to apply. These scholarships support participation in digital humanities workshops that are three or more days long. When the cycle is open, applications will be accepted on a rolling basis until funds are exhausted.
Below is a sample of the workshops that previous recipients have attended. Many of these institutes offer additional funding in the form of scholarships and reduced fees that may be coupled with a DHLab Training Scholarship. Applications to participate in a workshop not listed below will also be considered, so long as the workshop is digital humanities intensive and three or more days in length.
- Digital Humanities Summer Institute (DHSI)
- Because Yale University is a member of the Digital Library Federation (DLF), faculty, students, and staff are eligible for a registration discount. To receive the discount, enter the appropriate code (DLF-Stdnt OR DLF-NonStdnt) during online registration. With the discount, student registration is $300. For non-students, registration is $650.
- Humanities Intensive Learning and Teaching (HILT)
- Full-time enrolled students, early career scholars (terminal degree within 5 years), or current employees of galleries, archives, and museums may apply for a Sponsored Student Scholarship, which entails a $250 registration discount. Scholarships are awarded on a rolling basis until exhausted. Any 5 people people who register together are eligible for a 25% discount.
HOW TO APPLY
Yale undergraduates, graduate students, and library staff are eligible to apply. These scholarships cannot be awarded for training opportunities that are fully funded without the scholarship, and you may only receive one DHLab Training Scholarship per year.
If awarded a scholarship, you will be expected to give an informal presentation in the Digital Humanities Lab that summarizes what you learned so that others can benefit from your experience.
The current application cycle is closed. Check back later for the next cycle that will open late in fall 2019. Applications will ask for the following information:
- Name, department, and Yale affiliation (for example: undergraduate student)
- Name of the institute
- Specific course you plan to take
- A brief statement of how the course will help you in your research
- Other sources of funding you have received or expect to receive (scholarships, travel funds, etc.)
- Please indicate if you are an international student (all students are eligible)
