Digital Project Fellowship Program

The Digital Project Fellowship program engages graduate students in investigating a variety of web platforms hosted through Domain of One’s Own (DoOO) and will occur throughout the summer of 2023.

About the fellowship

During the program, fellows will explore and evaluate Omeka, Scalar, and Mukurtu to select the most appropriate web platform for their project. Fellows will then start prototyping their sites, beginning with a wireframe, and concluding with a completed proof of concept. 

You should apply with a self-directed online exhibit, digital collection, or digital scholarship project in mind and are encouraged to combine outcomes from the fellowship into your ePortfolio. You are also free to use the Domain of One’s Own's suite of applications to develop your own digital portfolios to meet graduate requirements. Platforms such as Mukurtu require more culturally sensitive intention and community engagement, so fellows should have a longer term project or professional goal in mind to successfully use these plaftorms.

The Digital Project Fellowship program is designed to address the following service areas and skill sets:

  • Technical training for website management
  • Strategies for content management
  • Development of content spaces for digital scholarship
