The HistoryMakers Digital Humanities Fellowship Application - Deadline: March 1, 2019
The HistoryMakers – the nation’s largest African American video oral history archive – invites applications for one of two $5,000 Digital Humanities Fellowship awards created with funding from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, for the period of Summer 2019 (April–September 2019). Submission is open to individuals or groups at all stages of their careers, as well as undergraduate and graduate students. Applicant’s work must use or be inspired by content from The HistoryMakers Digital Archive.

The HistoryMakers Digital Humanities Fellowship awards will be awarded to digital humanities scholars pursuing interpretive research projects that require digital expression, analysis, and/or digital publication. Projects must advance a scholarly argument through digital means and tools, and should incorporate visual, audio, and/or other multimedia materials or flexible reading pathways to address issues in African American history, the digital humanities, or general humanities, Project proposals should articulate an active distribution plan for sharing results. Stand-alone databases and other projects that lack an interpretive argument are not eligible. Award funds are meant to provide research, travel, and project support. The fellowship awards are expected to culminate in the realization and presentation of the proposed work, as well as its presentation. Finished products generated by awardees will be featured on The HistoryMakers website, and will compete for inclusion in The HistoryMakers 20th Anniversary Celebration at the Library of Congress (November 6-7, 2020).
