2019-20 Application Deadline: January 22, 2019
The Digital Scholarship Center (DSC) of Temple University Libraries will award fellowships for the next academic year to two Temple faculty members. Applicants should outline a research or creative project involving the use of computational methods in the study of topics of social or humanistic, rather than purely scientific interest.
DSC Faculty fellows receive one course reduction for the year, help with project management, a dedicated research assistant, and a $1000 research fund for project expenses. Fellows will also meet weekly with Center staff to discuss progress on their projects, and they meet monthly with the other fellows in the Center.

Recipients must be able to attend and participate in person for the weekly project conferences and monthly fellows meetings. Applicants must be tenured or tenure-track faculty members in one of the following participating schools and colleges: Center for the Performing and Cinematic Arts; College of Liberal Arts; Klein College of Media and Communication; Tyler School of Art.
Applications will be reviewed by an interdisciplinary group of faculty and librarians. Award decisions are based on the promise of the project, its relevance to your own research/creative work, its methodology, scope, conceptual framework, and the ability of the DSC to address the project’s needs. Please submit:
- A project statement (4-5 pages double-spaced, plus a bibliography or illustrations, if needed) describing: (1) the specific research/creative work planned for the year; (2) its significance to your research/creative agenda: (3) how the project will complement, challenge, or expand existing work in the field; and (4) expected outcomes.
- A current C.V.
Applicants may consult with the DSC in advance of applying. Send application materials to
