* Additional ACH Travel Bursary
The Association for Computers and the Humanities (http://www.ach.org) is again offering several bursaries to assist graduate students in defraying travel and lodging costs. You may apply for this bursary at the same time as for DHSI scholarships by indicating on the scholarship application form that you are a graduate student member of the ACH and would like to be considered for the ACH bursary.
The Digital Humanities Summer Institute provides an environment ideal to discuss, to learn about, and to advance skills in new computing technologies influencing the work of those in the Arts, Humanities and Library communities. The institute takes place across a week of intensive coursework, seminar participation, and lectures. It brings together faculty, staff, and graduate student theorists, experimentalists, technologists, and administrators from different areas of the Arts, Humanities, Library and Archives communities and beyond to share ideas and methods, and to develop expertise in applying advanced technologies to activities that impact teaching, research, dissemination and preservation.
