The Digital Humanities Lab supports a number of award programs to help advance digital scholarship at Yale. If you study or work at the university and are interested in these opportunities, please read more below.
DH Teaching Fellowships
Each semester, the Digital Humanities Lab appoints a cohort of Digital Humanities Fellows to assist with courses that have a strong digital humanities component. These positions provide semester-long support for graduate students to engage with digital humanities methods and theories in a classroom setting.
DHLab staff work with Fellows to design digital humanities assignments, arrange access to electronic content, and provide specialized technical training. Visit the DH Fellows page to learn about our current recipients and their courses.Learn More
Guided Research Fellowships
Guided Research Fellowships help Yale graduate students develop the skills they need to pursue their own digital humanities projects. Intended to provide a collaborative research and learning experience, these awards offer recipients the opportunity to deepen their knowledge of digital methods while advancing a project of their own design.
Fellowship recipients typically meet with DHLab staff on a bi-weekly basis for research advice, hands-on tool instruction, and guidance in other areas of project development. The fellowships may be used to support any stage of research, from dataset creation to analysis.Learn More
Rapid Prototyping Grants
Rapid Prototyping Grants are for focused design and development interventions to help a project get started or to add an innovative feature to an existing project. The grant may involve up to one week of project consulting, application design, and software development.Learn More
