About the GC Digital Fellows
Based in the GC Digital Scholarship Lab, the GC Digital Fellows Program operates as an in-house think-and-do tank for digital projects, connecting Fellows to digital initiatives throughout The Graduate Center. Digital Fellows utilize a team-based approach as they explore creative solutions for projects that can be implemented in a collaborative fashion. In the process, the Program helps build out “The Digital GC” — a vision of the Graduate Center that incorporates technology into its core research and teaching missions.
The total compensation for the award is $27,000. This funding will include a graduate assistant appointment that will carry eligibility to purchase the low-cost NYSHIP health insurance, a stipend, and in-state tuition remission for fellows who are within their first 10 registered semesters of study. Digital Fellows will be required to work a total of 450 non-teaching hours during the academic year (two 15-week semesters). The initial DF appointment is for one year, normally from September 1 through August 31 (exact dates vary and will be specified upon appointment). Determinations of DF re-appointments will be made on annual basis, depending on individual eligibility and GC needs.
