Digital Humanities Fellowships

Goad at computer

The Digital Humanities Fellowship, for up to two months, is open to scholars who are comfortable creating tools and visualizations, as well as those interested in working collaboratively with the APS technology team.

Scholars, including graduate students, at any stage of their career may apply. Special consideration will be given to proposals that present APS Library holdings in new and engaging ways. Examples include (but are not limited to) projects that incorporate timelines, text analytics, network graphs, and maps.

Stipend: $3,000 per month will be awarded to the successful applicant after their arrival at the Library.

All application materials will be submitted online. Applicants must submit:

  • Cover letter
  • Curriculum vitae
  • Prospectus for a digital project
  • Examples of previous digital humanities projects (if available)
  • Contact information for two people who will submit confidential letters of reference
  • Full details are available on the application webpage:

Application Deadline: March 2, 2018. Notifications will be sent by April 15, 2018.
