Digital Humanities Fellowship

Digital Humanities Fellowship

Deadline to Apply: March 4, 2022

The Center for Digital Scholarship (CDS) at the American Philosophical Society invites applications for Digital Humanities Fellowships at the American Philosophical Society’s Library & Museum. These fellowships, for up to 2 months, are open to scholars at all stages of their careers, including graduate students, who are developing digital projects that: 1) utilize the APS’s Library & Museum collections, open datasets, or other APS holdings to advance a digital component of an independent research project, or, 2) seek to apply existing tools and expertise to digital projects developed in collaboration with the Library & Museum’s Center for Digital Scholarship.

  • Successful applicants will receive a stipend of $3,000 per month for a minimum of one month and a maximum of two months.
  • Recent examples of collaborative projects have focused on the Center’s Open Data Initiative and have explored datasets created from Benjamin Franklin’s postal records, indenture records for servants and redemptioners coming through the port of Philadelphia during the 1770s, and a network visualization of correspondence networks of women scientists found in the APS’s collections.
