Training Grants

The Digital Humanities Forum pilot initiative has now yielded the Price Lab for Digital Humanities. All Digital Humanities Forum funding applications are now closed. For new and exciting funding opportunities, see the Price Lab for Digital Humanities website, coming this August.

Our training grants provide up to $1200 to help offset tuition, travel, and lodging to attend classes at any established program or training institute in digital humanities, including:

These intensive 3-5 day summer programs on advanced technologies in humanities research are a great way for novices to gain knowledge and certification in digital humanities, and for more seasoned researchers to broaden their expertise. Doctoral students in particular are finding that DH training can be an asset on the academic job market, as well as an enhancement to their research.

The DH training programs convene in the summer, but registration for most of them opens in autumn, and classes fill rapidly. For this reason, we encourage those applicants who are accepted to register as soon as possible after you hear from us on or before October 24th.

Note that there is no spring cycle for training grant applications; only applications received by October 3 will be considered. The application process is simple and may be completed online. Penn graduate students and all Penn faculty, standing or non-standing, are eligible to apply.
