Evans-Glasscock Digital Humanities Project Fellowship Archive
The Evans-Glasscock Digital Humanities Project Fellowship, provided by The Melbern G. Glasscock Center for Humanities Research and the Texas A&M University Libraries’ Sterling C. Evans Chair, offers support for the early development of projects in digital humanities. This program assists faculty in any department in the university by providing up to $10,000 to a project in digital humanities (collaborative or singly directed).
This program is meant to offer significant but flexible assistance to faculty – as individuals or in collaborative teams – whose scholarly project depends on or is fundamentally inflected by information technology, digitization, and computer-aided research. The program is especially aimed at those embarked on or keen to embark on research in the humanities that is ‘born digital.’
