Opportunity is subject to funding availability. Students interested in 2023 courses should write ASAP as funding is still available.

The University of Virginia, as a sponsoring institution of DHSI, provides a handful of tuition-free fellowships to attend a Digital Humanities Summer Institute course or workshop each year. UVA students, staff, non-TT faculty, and those without access to research travel funds are especially encouraged to apply.

The fellowships entirely cover the cost of course tuition for one course, using a code at the time of registration (rather than reimbursement afterward). These fellowships do not cover travel (to Victoria, B.C.), meals, or lodging, so applicants should be prepared to fund these out of pocket or by locating additional funding sources on your own.

Visit dhsi.org for descriptions of the available courses. Fellowships are offered on a first-come-first-served basis, and a call for interest is generally shared each fall.

To register interest, email bmw9t@virginia.edu:

  • UVA affiliation & status (e.g. 3rd year PhD in art history, staff job title in Library/department)
  • The course/workshop you’d like to take (and 1-2 other courses of interest, in case a course cap is reached)
  • Confirmation of your availability during the proposed course and your intention to attend
  • Whether you’ve identified funding (personal or from another funding source) to cover travel, lodging, and meal costs
