HASTAC Scholars fellowship program
The HASTAC Scholars fellowship program recognizes graduate and undergraduate students who are engaged in innovative work across the areas of technology, the arts, the humanities, and the social sciences. The HASTAC Scholars act as the eyes and ears of HASTAC’s virtual network. In the wake of the crisis facing traditional news media, the HASTAC Scholars are Citizen Journalists exploring the next-generation possibilities for intellectual dialogue imaginable through digital technology. The HASTAC Scholars report on the work happening on their campuses and in their region to an international audience by blogging, tweeting, vlogging, podcasting and other forms of networking with the online HASTAC community and with their local communities. The Scholars also facilitate a series of discussion forums on www.hastac.org. Open to all, these expansive forums initiate rich insights and meaty exchanges on timely issues related to digital media and learning and the
digital humanities more broadly.
The official nomination form is available through July 31.
A consortium of humanists, artists, scientists, and engineers, of leading researchers and nonprofit research institutions, HASTAC ("Haystack") is committed to new forms of collaboration across communities and disciplines fostered by creative uses of technology. The primary members are universities, supercomputing centers, grid and teragrid associations, humanities institutes, museums, libraries, and other civic institutions. Since 2003, HASTAC has been developing tools for multimedia archiving and social interaction, gaming environments for teaching, innovative educational programs in information science and information studies, virtual museums, and other digital projects.
