Scholarship | Digital Humanities Summer Institute @ University of Victoria

Applications due: February 14th

Thanks to the exceptional generosity of our sponsors and partners, we are able to offer a number of scholarships for the Digital Humanities Summer Institute. These scholarships are open to all, and cover course costs with the exception of a small, non-refundable administration fee (students $150, non-students $300).

The application process for DHSI scholarships typically opens early in the Fall term, announced via the DHSI e-mail list and DHInstitute on Twitter; sometimes, we'll be able to soft-launch earlier. Scholarship applications will be accepted until 14 February.

Applications are considered on a rolling basis, evaluated with attention to need, merit, and course availability at the time of evaluation.

Note: You can apply for, and are eligible to receive, scholarship spots in each, either, and both of the DHSI weeks. Please submit a separate application for each of the week-long sessions you are considering.

Scholarships can take a number of weeks to process. If you are hoping for a spot in a particular course that has limited room remaining, we recommend considering the fee reductions available to students and members of sponsoring and partner organizations and registering directly.

Please note:

  • There are a limited number of DHSI scholarship spots available in each course, offered as applications are considered on a rolling basis. As scholarship spots fill, closer to the deadline date DHInstitute on Twitter will often note which courses may still have DHSI scholarship spots available, as well as when additional spots become available. (The best rule of thumb, for better or worse, is that the more full a course is the less likely there will still be scholarship spots available; details of course enrolment levels are available on our website as enrolment rises.)
  • While DHSI scholarship spots may not be available in all courses at all times, there may still be some room available in those courses via direct registration at, with considerable fee reductions available to students and those members of sponsoring organisations (including the Alliance of Digital Humanities Organisations [ADHO], the Modern Language Association [MLA], Canadian Federation for the Humanities and Social Sciences [CFHSS], the Humanities, Arts, Science, and Technology Alliance and Collaboratory [HASTAC], and others!); see for further details.
  • In order to be eligible for a DHSI scholarship, you must complete the scholarship application and receive your acceptance before registering for a course.
  • DHSI scholarships are intended for the person to whom they are awarded, and are non-transferrable.
  • So that you receive correspondence from DHSI about your scholarship application in a timely manner, please ensure that your spam filter will allow emails from
