Opportunity Description

The Summer Graduate Fellowship in Digital Humanities supports a small interdisciplinary cohort of Cornell graduate students who together investigate approaches to digital scholarship through workshops, readings, discussion, and independent projects.

Throughout the span of the program, fellows attend organized workshops led by library staff and other experts from around campus. As the summer progresses, they dedicate increasingly more time to co-working sessions with peers and individual consultations with staff who assist them in planning and executing their own projects.

Current Cornell Ph.D. students working in the humanities are invited to apply. No advanced technical skills are required.

The 2018 fellowship program will run June 4—July 13 on the Ithaca campus.


  • Desire to explore digital approaches to research and teaching through workshops, reading, and discussion.
  • Desire and ability to contribute to a supportive, interdisciplinary summer learning community.
  • Commitment to building an independent digital project related to your research or pedagogy.
  • Have completed no more than 4 years in your graduate program at the time of the fellowship.
  • Resident on the Cornell campus during the program dates of June 4 – July 13.
  • Approval of your committee chair.
