Compute Canada offers two pairs of scholarships to Digital Humanities Summer Institute 2017


Compute Canada is offering two pairs of scholarships to the Digital Humanities Summer Institute (DHSI) 2017.  These will be awarded via a competition closing February 9, 2017. Submissions must include:

  • The name and institutional affiliation of a research based co-applicant (Faculty, Postdoc, or Graduate Student).
  • The name and institutional affiliation of a Compute Canada based co-applicant (analyst or consultant).
  • A summary of the project that the co-applicant pair is either currently collaborating on or which there are solid plans to collaborate on.
  • The DHSI 2017 courses that each co-applicant would plan to take. 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 will continue developing an understanding of the Digital Humanities while directly supporting Digital Humanities research.

Evaluation Criteria: Preference will be given to submissions requiring the development of skills in the co-applicants that would be of value both within and beyond the specific project named in the application.  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: DHSI 2017 registration for both the researcher and the Compute Canada analyst/consultant.  Flights, accommodation, and meals are included for the Compute Canada analyst/consultant.

Matchmaking: Anyone who would like to apply but who does not have a partner, whether it be a Compute Canada team member or a member of the research community, is invited to email John Simpson at for assistance. We can’t guarantee that we’ll be able to match you but we will try!

Submission Instructions: All applications must be emailed to John Simpson at before the end of February 9, 2017. Results will be announced the following week.
