Digital Scholarship Fellowship


The CDIL Digital Scholarship Fellowship program provides time and assistance for faculty members in the College of Letters, Arts, and Social Sciences (CLASS) to begin or continue exploring digital means for publishing or accomplishing their research. Selected Fellows will receive a course release during the Fall 2021 semester to enable them to work with CDIL staff and faculty in the pursuit of a digital scholarship project or the development of digital scholarship expertise.


At the end of their term as CDIL Digital Scholarship Fellow, faculty members will have completed major parts of their digital scholarship project, which will lead to online publication of the project via CDIL’s web platforms and/or a publication of some kind detailing the results of said project. Fellows will also be required to present on their respective projects in the CDIL facility, either as a traditional presentation or as a workshop. This program is designed to help faculty develop new skills and to promote digital scholarship across campus via publications, presentations, and workshops.
