The Friends of the Lehigh University Libraries is proud to announce the formation of a newly funded Digital Scholarship Faculty Fellowship. The fellowship provides $5,000 to faculty (of any rank or any discipline) to explore, reflect upon, and create scholarship produced with digital tools and presented in digital form. In collaboration with the Friends, The Center for Innovation in Teaching and Learning will oversee the Digital Scholarship Faculty Fellowship program.
Successful applicants for the Digital Scholarship Faculty Fellowship will 1) collaborate with Library and Technology Services staff and 2) focus on one or more of the following:
- • Address a scholarly question through new research methods or new ways of representing research, to include creating or improving digital resources;
- • Invite interdisciplinary collaboration ranging from undergraduate students to senior researchers;
- • Develop digital scholarship projects tied to the curriculum and research;
- • Address presentation and preservation issues.
The fellowship will support release time, stipend, and/or a graduate assistant. At the conclusion of the funding period, Fellowship results will be presented at a campus-wide, Friends-sponsored event. The application process will be distributed to faculty shortly. Questions can be addressed to Julia Maserjian at firstname.lastname@example.org.
