Digital Studies Fellows Application

Each year, DiSC invites applications for Digital Studies Fellowships. Fellows commit to teaching one course in the Digital Studies program while also pursuing a research project. DiSC welcomes applications from those both within and outside of Rutgers University-Camden. Residency is not required, and fellows can propose online courses. Fellows teach a single course during the Spring semester and attend monthly meetings (either in person or via video chat) during which they workshop research and creative projects with the Director, the Associate Director, and other fellows. The fellowship is open to a broad range of projects and courses, and you can see what kinds of projects have been funded by reading about the previous fellows. Research projects are supported up to $2,000 by a stipend issued as taxable income by DiSC. Those hired from outside the Rutgers University system will be paid as a part-time lecturer for teaching their course ($5,178 per three-credit course, according to the current contract).

Applications for the 2019-20 academic year are due June 3, 2019.
