DLF Students and New Professionals Forum Fellows:
The DLF warmly welcomes newcomers to the profession and new voices to our community. To that end, we fund DLF Forum Fellowships for Students and New Professionals. Early-career library employees and graduate and undergraduate student assistants who make a significant contribution to a digital library endeavor are eligible.
DLF HBCU Forum Fellows:
The DLF HBCU fellowships originated in 2017 part of a collaboration between the HBCU Library Alliance and the Digital Library Federation’s liberal arts college community. These awards are primarily designed to bring practitioners from Historically Black Colleges and Universities to the DLF Forum.

ARL + DLF Forum Fellows:
The DLF Forum typically achieves good gender balance, both for speakers and attendees—but our project to increase participant diversity and create an ever more inclusive community is an ongoing one. To this end, DLF began partnering with the Association of Research Libraries (ARL) in 2013 to welcome “Forum Fellows from Underrepresented Groups,” now known as the ARL+DLF Forum Fellowships.
Focus Forum Fellows:
If you’re looking to focus (or re-focus!) your efforts on a particular project, subject, or goal, attending the Forum is a great way to expand your knowledge and make connections. These DLF-funded awards support established professionals in their pursuit of career growth and development.
