Calls for Funding

One of our key priorities is to support research training in critical digital humanities at every level, including postdoctoral fellowships, graduate fellowships, and undergraduate fellowships. We support interdisciplinary training programs that bring humanities students into dialogue with data studies, digitality, and computational methods, as well as supporting quantitative data science students to engage with questions of ethics, critical analysis, close reading, and interpretation.
