Digital Humanities at Berkeley invites current UC Berkeley faculty, students, and academic staff to take advantage of our offerings for full tuition or discounted tuition in June 2018. The application deadline is midnight on Wednesday, November 22nd, 2017. We particularly encourage applications from departments in the Division of Arts & Humanities.

The Digital Humanities Summer Institute at the University of Victoria (DHSI) provides intensive, week-long courses around particular tools, methodologies, or theories for engaging with digital humanities. With hundreds of participants from around the world, DHSI is a major venue for meeting potential collaborators. DHSI will be held over two weeks, allowing participants to take up to two courses.

Not sure what course to take? Read about past attendees’ experiences on the DH at Berkeley blog. 

Five selected applicants will receive a tuition voucher for one course of their choice; travel and lodging are not covered. However, low-cost, on-campus accommodations are available through DHSI. If selected, you will be expected to:

  • Give a short presentation about your experience at a digital humanities event.

Funded attendees will also join the Digital Humanities Fellows cohort, a community of practice which gathers to discuss intermediate to advanced questions in the digital humanities.



To apply please submit a PDF proposal using this webform. Your proposal should include:

  • a copy of your CV
  • a statement (one page or less) indicating what course you would like to take and why.

All faculty, graduate students, and academic staff in the College of Letters and Sciences are eligible to apply.

Discounted Tuition and External Tuition Programs

Individuals who are not selected for the tuition voucher can still take advantage of the discounted tuition available for all UC Berkeley faculty, students and staff ($300 CDN for students, $650 CDN for non-students), using our sponsor code.

  • DHSI offers a number of tuition scholarships on a rolling basis
  • Travel bursaries for graduate students may also be available through the Association for Computers and the Humanities (ACH).
  • Certain courses offer reduced tuition to members of organizations such as the Alliance of Digital Humanities Organisations (ADHO), the Modern Language Association (MLA), and the Humanities, Arts, Science, and Technology Alliance and Collaboratory (HASTAC)
