Digital History PhD Fellowships available for Fall 2018

We’re pleased to announce that the Department of History & Art History at George Mason University has received another round of funding from the Provost’s Ph.D. Award Program to admit two Digital History Fellows to the Ph.D. program in each of the next three years.

Fellows enrolling in Fall 2018 will receive stipends of $20,000 for two years, during which time they will take a practicum course each semester here at RRCHNM, and then a further three years of support from the Department of History and Art History. The practicum courses provide an opportunity to be part of a digital history center and to contribute to a range of projects across all three of the Center’s divisions. Syllabi for the practicum courses can be found on the Fellows’ blog, which also includes posts by all six cohorts of fellows reflecting on their experiences at the Center.

Students interested in applying to the GMU History PhD program and being a Digital history Fellow should consult the information on the department website or contact the department’s graduate director, Sam Lebovic. Applications close January 15, 2018.
