Applications Open for ECDS-Partnered “Graduate Community of Digital Scholars”

We are pleased to announce a new program, the Graduate Community of Digital Scholars, co-sponsored by the Fox Center for Humanistic Inquiry, Emory Center for Digital Scholarship (ECDS), and Laney Graduate School. Graduate students in the humanities and humanistic social sciences who would like to develop their digital and/or public scholarship skills are invited to apply.

Applications are due Monday, August 23, 2021.


The program supports students’ engagement with digital scholarship, giving them space to test and refine their work, receive individual mentorship, and present their work to both academic and public audiences. The program offers two tracks: the Digital Dissertation Scholars Program (a one-year program supported by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation), for those interested in building a digital component of their dissertation; or the HASTAC Scholars Program (Humanities, Arts, Science, and Technology Alliance and Collaboratory: a two-year program), for those interested broadly in public digital scholarship. Students in both tracks meet together as a cohort throughout the year to learn from digital scholarship professionals and to workshop their project ideas and methodologies, culminating in a digital prototype, or project plan, and final presentation.

Students may apply to ONE program track at a time. Students who have completed one track are eligible to apply for the other. Details and specific application guidelines for each track are outlined HERE.

Notifications to selected applicants in both tracks will be sent out by September 3, 2021. The community will convene in October 2021.
