Compute Canada offers scholarships to Digital Humanities Summer Institute 2018


Compute Canada is offering five scholarships to the Digital Humanities Summer Institute (DHSI) 2018.  These will be awarded via a competition closing March 8, 2018. Submissions must include:

  • The name and institutional affiliation of a research-based applicant (Faculty, Postdoc, or Graduate Student).
  • A summary of the project that the applicant is either currently collaborating on or which there are solid plans to collaborate on.
  • The DHSI 2018 courses offered by Compute Canada that the applicant would take (#8, #18, #41, or #49). Include a list of backup courses should the first-choice courses not be available.

All of the above should fit on a single page using reasonable font sizes.  Please submit a PDF.

Purpose: Compute Canada is seeking to increase support to the Digital Humanities both in general and with regards to specific skills and tools. By offering collaboration-based scholarships based around actual projects, Compute Canada is directly supporting Digital Humanities research by ensuring that expertise within teams goes beyond single individuals.

Evaluation Criteria: Preference will be given to submissions requiring the development of skills in the applicants that would be of value both within and beyond the specific project named in the application. There is also a preference for applicants at Canadian institutions or working with Canadian researchers and projects; however, everyone is welcome to apply. Additionally, projects that are seen to be of value to the Digital Humanities community and/or which could be used as templates for future work by others will also be preferred.

Includes: DHSI2018 registration in one of the specified DHSI 2018 courses offered by Compute Canada. (Approximate total value is $950 CDN.) Flights, accommodation, and meals are not included.

Submission Instructions: All applications must be emailed to John Simpson at before the end of March 8, 2018. Results will be announced the following week.
