IATH Looking for New Fellows

December 7, 2021

Apply to be an IATH Fellow!

IATH is looking for applications from faculty at the University of Virginia for its Residential and Associate Fellowship program. University of Virginia faculty members involved in humanities research through any department are eligible to apply. Non-UVA faculty are welcome to apply for a Visiting Fellowship (see below).

Interested? The application deadline is January 15, 2022. Contact Worthy Martin (martin@virginia.edu) to discuss your proposal, or call us at (434) 924-4527. Guidelines can be found at http://www.iath.virginia.edu/guidelines.html, and the application form is available at http://www.iath.virginia.edu/application.html.

Residential and Associate Fellows

Resident Fellowships are for a two-year period and include design and development assistance, use of equipment and software, training, computer programming, budget resources, office space, and development assistance to raise additional grants and gifts to support the research project. The Associate Fellowship lasts one academic year, and includes consulting services on project design and technical issues, equipment loans, and grant assistance.

Please note that Residential Fellows' home departments must commit to a half-time teaching release for the first year and partial support for a research assistant, with endorsement by their Dean’s Office.

Visiting Fellows

Visiting Fellowships are designed for non-UVA faculty. Visiting Fellows are not required to be in residence in Charlottesville and the Fellowships can take a variety of forms: a month-long residency in Charlottesville, a year-long networked editing project, an international conference to discuss metadata standards, and so forth. There is no fixed application deadline. We strongly suggest, however, that applicants contact us at least six months before they wish to begin (more if financial support is required). The actual fellowship period, work performed, and end product will vary from one project to another, and are awarded on an ad hoc basis. Unfortunately, we cannot provide funding to Visiting Fellows. We will, however, provide advice and guidance to help applicants secure appropriate funding.

Interested individuals and groups should send a letter of interest along with a one-page project description and a statement of funding needs and resources to Worthy Martin (martin_at_virginia.edu), or call (434) 924-4527 for more information.
