The Digital Humanities Summer Institute (DHSI; main website: http://dhsi.org/) will be held this year on June 1-5, 8-12, and 15-19, 2015 at the University of Victoria, offering different courses during each week-long session.
The Initiative for Digital Humanities, Media, and Culture is offering free tuition to five TAMU participants, with preference given to early career scholars (including graduate students) and proposals that clearly demonstrate the role that the DHSI course will play in their research. The IDHMC scholarship covers tuition for one class per applicant. DH Certificate students are encouraged to incorporate DHSI training into independent studies with TAMU faculty.
Partial matching funds travel scholarships may be awarded on a competitive basis. These awards will be determined after the five tuition scholarships are awarded.
To apply for this opportunity, please write a 250-500 word statement including:
1) Which course you wish to take at DHSI. Course and registration information can be found at http://dhsi.org/courses.php. Since there are now multiple week-long sessions, please look at the course offerings carefully to be sure you can travel during the week your course is offered.
2) How this course will benefit your scholarship or digital project(s).
Send all statements, including name, department, and contact information, to Dr. Laura Mandell and Dr. Maura Ives at idhmc at tamu dot edu.
All applications to this opportunity are due October 30th, 2014.
PLEASE NOTE that there are several alternatives to the IDHMC scholarship, should you wish to pursue them. DHSI also offers a limited number of tuition scholarships, for which you may apply directly to DHSI. Also, all TAMU applicants to DHSI are eligible for reduced fees via the discount codes TAMU-Student or TAMU-Non-Student (see dhsi-org/registration.html).
