Apply for Freedman Fellows faculty, student programs by June 1

The deadline to submit applications for the 2022-2023 Freedman Fellows program and Freedman Student Fellows program is June 1. This annual award funds well-defined research projects that involve the application of digital tools and methods to scholarly or pedagogical problems.

The Freedman Fellows program supports and funds full-time, board-appointed, tenured or tenure-track faculty, and clinical research faculty, at the rank of assistant professor, with planning and developing digital scholarship projects and instruction. Freedman Fellows partner with the Digital Scholarship team to advance their project. The team advises recipients on project design, technological needs and adjacent issues such as copyright, privacy, and data ethics.

The Freedman Student Fellowship program will provide undergraduate and graduate students the ability to partake in an internship or grant track.

Applicants for both tracks are strongly encouraged to schedule a consultation with members of the Digital Scholarship team before submitting an application. To schedule a consultation, contact
