The award will cover tuition only, and is only available to participants from DLF member institutions. (Check your eligibility.) Applicants or their employers are responsible for the costs of travel and lodging, and winners must register by April 1st in order to use the award.
DLF-DHSI Cross-Pollinators will also be invited to contribute a DLF blog post about their experiences after the event.
The Digital Humanities Summer Institute provides an ideal environment for discussing and learning about new computing technologies and how they are influencing teaching, research, dissemination, creation, and preservation in different disciplines, via a community-based approach. A time of intensive coursework, seminars, and lectures, participants at DHSI share ideas and methods, and develop expertise in using advanced technologies. Every summer, the institute brings together faculty, staff, and students from the Arts, Humanities, Library, and Archives communities as well as independent scholars and participants from areas beyond. Described by one participant as an event that “combines the best aspects of a skills workshop, international conference, and summer camp,” the DHSI prides itself on its friendly, informal, and collegial atmosphere.
About the DLF Cross-Pollinator Awards
We make a growing number of travel and tuition grants available year-round to DLF members and to the broader community invested in digital library work. Many of these grants bring individuals from other communities to the DLF Forum, or help DLF practitioners who wish to build a dynamic and diverse peer network make it to events they may not otherwise attend.
The goal of these fellowships is to create “cross-pollinators”—professionals who move freely among our (sometimes walled) gardens. In an increasingly networked world, DLF means to increase communication among groups interested in the future of information, including museums, libraries, colleges and universities, and anyone working in digital collections and services.
