The Undergraduate Digital Research Fellowship is a two-quarter program for undergraduate students looking to build independent digital research projects. Students are introduced to Digital Humanities methods and learn digital skills that allow them to build unique digital projects.
Learn Digital Humanities Methods
This new fellowship is an opportunity for undergraduate students to engage with the Digital Humanities: learning digital tools, methodologies, and community practices in order to build a research project of their own design. During the Winter 2020 Quarter, students meet every other week for hands-on workshops and meetings with DH practitioners. The following quarter is dedicated to building individual projects. Participants receive individual mentorship and training to build a project that reflects their own research interests.
Up to 6 undergraduate students will be accepted to participate in this two-quarter workshop series and mentorship program that supports the development of creative and digital research projects. Where appropriate, we encourage these projects to be public-facing. Students learn as part of a cohort and receive feedback from their peers. Each student or project team will receive an award to support the development or public presentation of their work. At the end of the Spring quarter, students will present their projects at the Digital Research Symposium.
Each fellow will be paired with a Digital Scholarship Librarian who will help think through the integration of technology and research based on the skillsets involved. Students are required to apply with a faculty mentor who can help advise on the field specialty. We encourage students to work with their mentor on setting up an independent study for the project and are happy to discuss how we can support that with the student and faculty mentor.
