Apply to 2019 Freedman Fellows Program for digital research funding

The Freedman Center for Digital Scholarship is now accepting applications for the 2019 Freedman Fellows Program. This annual award is given to full-time CWRU faculty and staff whose current scholarly research projects involve the use of digital tools and processes that are of scholarly or instructional interest (including data sets, digital texts, digital images and databases), and have clearly articulated project outcomes.

Proposed requests can range from $1,000 to a maximum of $15,000 to support the expenses related to innovative scholarly or creative projects that meet the criteria. Awarded amounts may vary depending on scope of project.

Proposals for the program are due Friday, April 12, at 5 p.m.

Applicants are encouraged to schedule a consultation with members of the Digital Learning & Scholarship team before submitting an application. Team members can help clarify a project, identify scope creep and help pinpoint possible deliverables. To schedule a consultation, contact
