Scholarship and Bursary Applications

Sponsored Tuition Scholarships

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

The application process for tuition 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. Applications are considered on a rolling basis, evaluated with attention to need, merit, and course availability at the time of evaluation. Scholarship applications will be accepted until 14 February.

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 tuition reductions available to students and members of sponsoring and partner organizations and registering directly.

Please note:

  • There are a limited number of tuition 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 tuition scholarship spots available, as well as when additional tuition spots become available.)
  • While tuition scholarship spots may not be available in all courses, there may still be some room available in those courses via direct registration at http://www.dhsi.org/registration.html, with considerable tuition 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 http://dhsi.org/registration.html#SponsorRegistration for further details.
  • In order to be eligible for a tuition scholarship, you must complete the scholarship application and receive your acceptance before registering for a course.
  • Tuition 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 uvic.ca.
  • We regret that we are unable to offer tuition reimbursements to participants who register before receiving the results of their scholarship application.
