Faculty Development Fellowship


The Digital Scholarship Development Fellowship recipient will meet with CDIL staff for 3 to 4 training sessions throughout one semester. The specific content of these sessions will be tailored according to the fellow’s research interests during an initial planning meeting with CDIL staff early in the semester, but general topics covered will include an introduction to digital humanities (DH) tools and methods in the areas of web development, annotation, and text mining, as well as core readings in DH theory. The fellow will also be expected to meet with CDIL staff for a minimum of 1 project development meetings throughout the semester.


By the end of the fellowship semester, the CDIL Digital Scholarship Development Fellow will submit a 1-4 page project proposal to CDIL staff, based on the NEH DH Advancement Grant Application’s structure. Building on the methods, theories, and tools learned in this fellowship, this proposal will detail a plan for a digital scholarship project. The proposal will be reviewed by CDIL staff and former CDIL fellows, and feedback will be provided the following semester.
