fellowsThe Scholars’ Lab is proud to host prestigious fellowship program for ABD graduate students doing significant and innovative work in the digital humanities at the University of Virginia.

Supported by the Jeffrey C. Walker Library Fund for Technology in the Humanities, the Matthew & Nancy Walker Library Fund, and a challenge grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities, the Graduate Fellowship in DH is designed to advance the humanities and provide emerging digital scholars with an opportunity for growth.
