Call for Applications: Digital Humanities Graduate Research Fellowship (Deadline Extended to 10/13)

Sep 8 2020

Stanford PhD Students are invited to apply to the 2020-21 Digital Humanities Graduate Research Fellowship program, offered by CESTA (Center for Spatial and Textual Analysis).

The Digital Humanities Graduate Research Fellowship is designed to prepare graduate students for a future where digital scholarship is the norm. Fellows spend the year designing and producing a piece of publishable, digitally-enhanced scholarship (an article, dissertation chapter, digital publication, etc). While working with leading experts in the digital humanities, fellows will prepare to enter the job market and explore future careers in digital scholarship. This year’s fellowship will offer additional resources to help students make the most of a year in which most learning will take place online.

Benefits and Funding:

  • Meet and learn from faculty and other experts on the use of digital methods in the Humanities
  • Mentorship and training to develop your research project.
  • Technical and professional workshops.
  • Funding for virtual conferences, training, or research assistance.
  • Additional resources for online training in DH methods or funding for research assistance.


Eligibility: The application is open to Stanford graduate students working on individual projects or collaborative projects with faculty. Priority is given to PhD students in the arts and humanities who have completed their required coursework or are TGR. Applications are due by October 13, 2020 (deadline extended).
