Mellon Doctoral Summer Fellowships

Mellon Doctoral Summer Fellowships

UPDATE: Due to disruptions to work related to the COVID-19 outbreak, the deadline for this fellowship has been extended to FRIDAY, MARCH 27, 2020


The Price Lab is pleased to announce Mellon Summer Research Fellowships for humanities graduate students in the School of Arts and Sciences at the University of Pennsylvania. The fellowships have been designed to allow students to take advantage of the relatively less hectic summer months to pursue work in the digital humanities. Fellowship recipients may use their funds to pursue a research project in any area of the digital humanities and/or to engage in a structured program of study and training in DH tools or methods, for example by attending training institutes or enrolling in a set of summer workshops.

Fellows will receive awards of up to $6,000 paid in three installments of $2,000; one at the beginning of the summer, one after the completion of a short progress report in the middle of the summer, and one after the submission of a final report at the end of the summer.

To apply, please submit a 500 word proposal, an unoffical transript, and a copy of your current CV to by midnight  ̶M̶a̶r̶c̶h̶ ̶1̶5̶,̶ ̶2̶0̶2̶0̶  March 27, 2020. Please mention Mellon Summer Doctoral Research Fellowship in the subject line.
