Bucknell’s Library & Information Technology provides various funding opportunities for faculty and students interested in digital scholarship:
Summer Research Grants
These stipends fulfill an important component of our digital scholarship initiative in which faculty work with students to develop a productive cycle of teaching and research in digital scholarship, collaborating on the creation of new knowledge that can subsequently lead to new research questions. Students receive $3000 and summer housing. Faculty receive $500. If you’re interested in applying for a 2018 Summer Research Grant, please stop by one of our Grant Application Workshops. 2018 proposals are due by Friday, Feb. 9, 2018 at 11:59 p.m. ET.
Micro grants are designed to encourage ongoing digital research projects in the Humanities and Social Sciences within the academic year (August – May) and will pay faculty-identified student research assistants over a specific period of time at a competitive hourly wage (compared with other on-campus employment opportunities) that is commensurate with their prior experience and abilities.

Digital Pedagogy Institute
This week long institute is intended to help faculty identify and create 2-3 specific modules or assignments for a course that integrate established teaching methods with emerging digital methodologies and tools in order to meet your learning outcomes, increase student engagement, and further students’ digital literacy skills. The institute is aligned with the University’s digital scholarship initiative, whereby teaching and research are enhanced, extended, or reconsidered through application of technology. Check back for more information on the 2018 Digital Pedagogy Institute.
Throughout the year, Library & IT offers a number of multi-day workshops to introduce faculty to various digital tools and methods. Our events calendar includes information on upcoming workshops.
