Simpson Center Digital Humanities Summer Fellowships

Application Deadline: November 5, 2021

  • For UW PhD students 
  • Projects in the humanities that use and/or explore digital cultures
  • Total award of $9,500, including salary and research budget

The Digital Humanities Summer Fellowships for Graduate Students support scholars whose projects use digital technologies in innovative and intensive ways and/or explore the historical, social, aesthetic, and cross-cultural implications of digital cultures. We have expanded our call for proposals to also include projects focused on digital humanities pedagogy.

Digital projects may be conceived as a complement to a print project, and projects that incorporate digital components into dissertations are strongly encouraged. For example, we encourage proposals from students who are experimenting with videographic criticism (see [in]Transition: A Media Commons Project).

Projects in digital humanities pedagogy might explore any number of platforms and tools for use in (and beyond) the undergraduate classroom. What use might students make of digital technologies for exploring and creating online archives and exhibits, timelines and visualizations, mapping, and multi-modal storytelling and research, including podcasts and rich video and image content?

Joint applications for collaborative projects are encouraged.


UW doctoral students who have completed their master’s degrees by the deadline for application and who will receive no other funding during the term of the award. Please contact the Simpson Center if you have questions about your eligibility.
