Funding Opportunities

Posted by on Saturday, June 13, 2020 in Graduate Student Resources.


Andrew W. Mellon Foundation
The Mellon Foundation is a key provider of academic funding at the institutional level. While students cannot apply to receive individual support directly from the Foundation, keep an eye out for opportunities offered by the Foundation’s many campus partners. For example, Vanderbilt graduate students are eligible to apply for year-long Mellon Fellowships with the University’s Center for Digital Humanities.

CLIR (Council on Library Information and Resources)
Important CLIR funding opportunities include dissertation research grants and postdoctoral fellowships. The latter are usually hosted at libraries and academic institutions around the country, and the majority require DH skills.
