DHSI Scholarships

RSA partners with Digital Humanities Summer Institute to offer tuition scholarships (application deadline: 15 August 2016) and discounted registration rates

The Renaissance Society of America is pleased to announce that it will partner with the Digital Humanities Summer Institute (DHSI) in 2017, to offer five tuition scholarships (each for one week) to current RSA members who wish to attend the institute.

Additionally, all current RSA members will have the opportunity to register for one of the institute’s courses (one week) at a discounted rate.

The DHSI (dhsi.org) will be held on 5–9 June and 12–16 June 2017 at the University of Victoria, Canada. Participants may choose to attend one or two weeks of the institute. Each week will include a training workshop as well as a selection of colloquia, unconferences, panels, and institute lectures.

Tuition scholarships

Note: If you’re applying for a tuition scholarship, do not register for any course until after the RSA informs you of the result of the scholarship competition. This is because, in the event that you win a scholarship, DHSI cannot refund registrations.

Eligibility: Applicants must already be an RSA member in 2016, and if they win a scholarship, they must renew their membership in 2017.

Deadline: 15 August 2016

The committee will consider applications from scholars at all stages of their careers.

The scholarship covers the cost of tuition only; transportation and lodging costs are the responsibility of the winner.

Application:

  1. Fill out a very brief form that asks for name, email address, mailing address, affiliation, academic status, and discipline: http://goo.gl/forms/nfvIaDkt3Wx5q2eu1.
  2. Submit documents by email (dhsiapp@rsa.org):
    • Resume (no more than two pages)
    • One-page letter indicating which DHSI course you propose to attend and how it meets your overarching research aims. Please also identify a second course choice, in the event that your first choice is unavailable.

Discounted registration rate for RSA members

Note: If you’re applying for an RSA tuition scholarship, do not register for any course until after the RSA informs you of the result of the scholarship competition. This is because, in the event that you win a scholarship, DHSI cannot refund registrations.

Before 1 April 2017, RSA members can register for either weeklong course at the discounted rate of $300 for students and $650 for nonstudents. To view a list of all courses, please go to dhsi.org. Because the most popular courses will fill quickly, we recommend that you register as soon as the results of the scholarship competition are known.

To register at the discounted rate, you must be a current RSA member (2016) and you must renew your membership for 2017.
