To encourage the development of courses that engage in the digital humanities (DH), CoDHR is providing bursaries for faculty teaching graduate courses that include DH content.  (Undergraduate courses are not eligible at this time.)  Bursaries are from $300 to $500 and will be awarded during the Fall or Spring semester in which the course is taught.

Review the DH Certificate FAQs for the criteria necessary to include digital humanities content into a course.  Preference will be given to applicants who incorporate BigDIVA and/or the HVS (Humanities Visualization Space) into the course.

Spring 2022 Semester Application Deadline is October 10, 2021

Fall 2022 Semester Application Deadline is March 6, 2022

To apply complete and submit the Fall 2021 Digital Humanities Course Application form and include the following:

  • Course Title
  • Course Description (from Current Catalog)
  • Describe Digital Humanities Component
  • Digital Humanities Certificate Criteria (Does this course meet either standard (Content or Graded Material) for granting DH certificate credit, see FAQs.)
  • Explain how this course meets the criteria for a digital humanities course and/or attach a draft course syllabus.
  • List of CoDHR funding received within past three years.

Bursary is limited to one (1) award for the same course taught by the same instructor within two (2) years.

DH Graduate Certificate Courses under Contingent Courses that require a syllabus are eligible for the bursary.  However, Approved Courses that do not require a syllabus are not eligible for the bursary.  Proposed course does not have to be on the certificate course list.

When the submission date falls on a weekend or a TAMU recognized holiday, the application deadline is extended to the next business day.
