The fellowship will provide a unique opportunity for the recipient to develop an innovative research project at RRCHNM, where she/he will be in residence for one year. One of the Center's Associate Directors will work with the fellow to develop a project further and help her/him develop the skills needed for that project. The fellow will also have the opportunity to join teams working on projects in development at RRCHNM as well as to sit in on graduate digital history classes at GMU. Depending upon qualifications and visa status, the fellow might teach or co-teach undergraduate courses involving digital history.

Moreover, the fellow will have the opportunity to get in contact with other North American Centers for Digital History or Digital Humanities. The Max Weber Foundation - International Humanities will invite the fellow to organize a workshop on new perspectives in the field of Digital History after completing the fellowship.
