At present, MITH offers one fellowship opportunity, the Winnemore Digital Humanities Dissertation Fellowship Program, which is awarded every other year.

The Clara and Robert Vambery Distinguished Professor of Comparative Studies award is offered by the Comparative Literature Department, with MITH as a collaborator. Those candidates selected for the Vambery Distinguished Professorship who propose projects involving digital media are eligible to become MITH Vambery Fellows.

Read below for more information about formerly-offered MITH fellowships such as the Resident Faculty Fellows and Networked Associate programs.

  • Resident Faculty Fellows: Between 2000 and 2013, MITH offered residential fellowships to over 20 UMD faculty members in various departments within the humanities. Fellowships were offered to professors or librarians developing their research, teaching, and information studies work in ways that implemented and productively exploited electronic resources, with preference given to those who had worked especially to integrate their scholarly discoveries and methods into their pedagogy, mentoring, and library practices. MITH offered server space and customized programming support as well as consultation on overall project objectives, design, and management.
  • Networked Associates: To expand the reach and resources of MITH and meet the overwhelming interest in developing projects and programs in humanities computing by faculty and graduate students, MITH offered the Networked Associate Program (MNAP) between 2000-02, awarding five fellowships in that time. MNAP offered scholars based both within and outside the University of Maryland a suite of resources to help develop creative and critical projects in humanities research and education.
