The Center for Humanities and Information
In order to continue building capacity for innovative research and teaching at Penn State, the College of the Liberal Arts is offering Digital Humanities Grants of up to $1000 to graduate students who are pursuing digital humanities projects or are seeking additional training in 2021.
Students currently enrolled in a PhD program in the College of the Liberal Arts are eligible to apply for Digital Humanities Graduate Student Grants. Preference will be given to applicants who have not received a grant from the Center for Humanities and Information in prior years.
The grant funds are primarily intended to offset the costs of attending workshops or seminars related to the digital humanities. Awardees will request reimbursement after their course is completed; all campus policies regarding reimbursements must be followed.
Additionally, the grant funds can be used to offset costs associated with a new or ongoing digital humanities project. Allowable costs include obtaining reproductions of research materials and/or purchasing software or hardware.
Due to changing conditions surrounding the pandemic, we cannot guarantee that funds will be able to be used to support travel.
Awarded funds must be disbursed no later than December 15, 2022.
Letters of application should consist of:
- Name, department, and doctoral status.
- A description (up to 500 words) of how the grant funds would support your research and/or teaching.
- A brief budget estimating expenses.
If you have questions about the grant, please contact Eric Hayot.
Applications are due by March 31 to firstname.lastname@example.org. Awards will be announced in mid-May.
