Digital Studies Fellows
Each year, the DSC invites applications for Digital Studies Fellowships. Fellows commit to teaching one course in the Digital Studies Certificate program while also spending a semester doing research. The DSC welcomes applications from those both within and outside of Rutgers University-Camden. Residency is not required, and fellows can propose online courses. Fellows have the option of teaching and conducting research in a single semester or may elect to split their activities between semesters in an academic year. Applications are typically due in February.
In the interest of cultivating a broad, interdisciplinary community of digital studies scholars, the DSC offers financial support for faculty and students who would like to attend and/or present at conferences that take up digital technologies from various disciplinary angles. Those receiving support are asked to develop a short presentation, reporting back to the Rutgers-Camden community about what they learned at the conference.
Digital Studies Project Grant Competition
In the spring, the DSC issues an annual call for grant proposals. The DSC funds projects by Rutgers-Camden faculty, staff, and students, and projects can be at various stages of the research process. DSC grants allow faculty to pilot, continue, or complete a project using digital technologies or investigating the impact of digital technology on the world. Applicants are asked to provide a detailed description of the project, a plan for what will be accomplished, and a proposal for how they plan to share their research with the Rutgers-Camden community. The DSC hosts an annual showcase that allows grant winners to share their work. Applications are typically due in early April.
