Submit proposals for Freedman Fellows Program

The Freedman Center for Digital Scholarship is accepting proposals for the 2018 Freedman Fellows Program. This annual award is given to full-time Case Western Reserve University faculty and staff whose current scholarly research projects involve the use of digital tools and processes that are of scholarly or instructional interest (e.g., data sets, digital texts, digital images, 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 by Friday, June 1, 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

With additional questions, contact Charlie Harper, the digital learning and scholarship librarian, at
