Mellon Fellowships in the Digital Humanities

In 2013, the University of Rochester received a one million dollar grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation aimed at promoting the development of the digital humanities. The grant funds a graduate fellowship program that trains humanities students to integrate digital technologies into innovative research programs.

The graduate fellowship provides two years of support to select PhD students from among the departments of English, visual and cultural studies, history, and philosophy.
