Call for Applications for CDIL Fellowship Programs
February 04, 2019
Applications for the Center for Digital Inquiry and Learning (CDIL) 2019 fellowship programs are now open and due by March 8. Opportunities are available for faculty, graduate and undergraduate students in the College of Letters, Arts and Social Sciences (CLASS) to pursue and explore digital scholarship with support from CDIL. Full information is available on the CDIL website.
CLASS faculty are invited to apply for two fellowship programs:
- CDIL Digital Scholarship Fellowships: The CDIL Digital Scholarship Fellowship program provides time and assistance for faculty members in CLASS to begin or continue exploring digital means for publishing or accomplishing their research. Selected fellows will receive a course release during the Fall 2019 semester to enable them to work with CDIL staff and faculty in the pursuit of a digital scholarship project or the development of digital scholarship expertise.
- CDIL Summer Symposium Fellowships: The award will provide $1500 of summer salary to participate with a cohort of fellow awardees from both the University of Idaho and Washington State University's Center for Digital Scholarship and Curation (CDSC) in the 2nd Palouse Digital Scholarship Symposium. The week-long symposium held in May will explore a broad variety of tools, techniques, and ideas informing the digital scholarship in the humanities and social sciences. It is intended to support faculty as they begin or continue expanding their work with digital scholarship tools, projects, and processes, while building connections with other researchers in the community.
CLASS students are encouraged to apply for two summer fellowship opportunities:
- Graduate and Undergraduate Student Summer Fellowships: With the support of the College of Graduate Studies (COGS) and the Office of Undergraduate Research (OUR), CDIL is offering summer fellowships for graduate and undergraduate students pursuing a degree in CLASS. Fellows will work part time for 10 weeks on the development of CDIL-related digital scholarship projects, including both projects related to CDIL-connected faculty or of the student's own creation. Undergraduates will earn $13 per hour. Graduate students will earn $16 per hour and will participate in the Palouse Digital Scholarship Symposium in May.
These fellowships are made possible by support from CLASS, the U of I Library, the Office of Research and Economic Development, the College of Graduate Studies, and the Office of Undergraduate Research.
