The 2021 Digital Humanities Summer Institute (DHSI; main website http://dhsi.org) will be held on June 7-11 and 14-18, 2021 at the University of Victoria, offering different courses during each week-long session.

CoDHR is offering fellowships for Texas A&M University (TAMU) applicants, 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.  DH Graduate Certificate students are encouraged to incorporate DHSI training into independent studies with TAMU faculty.

Course and registration information can be found at http://dhsi.org/courses-php.  Since there are two week-long sessions, please look at the course offerings carefully to be sure you can travel during the week your course is offered.

Graduate student applicants are required to:

  • Apply for a sponsored DHSI scholarship or other bursary award to be eligible for a $500-$600 CoDHR Fellowship.  (Only proof of a DHSI scholarship/bursary application submission is required.)  For DHSI Scholarships and Travel Bursary Application information see: http://www.dhsi.org/scholarships.php.
  • Obtain a minimum of $250 in matching funds from their department and/or other funding source, e.g., OGAPS’ Graduate Student Research and Presentation Travel Award.  Proof of matching funds must be provided before attending DHSI.

Students graduating in May 2021 are not eligible to receive a fellowship.

Faculty/Staff applicants are eligible to receive free tuition for one course per applicant.
