Bucknell Digital Research Assistant Funding Application
Library & IT has established a grant funding pilot program designed to support faculty-student digital research during the Academic Year. These micro grants, made possible in part by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, 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.
Grant funding can be used for one student over a particular period of time (usually weeks or months) or for two or more students working as a cohort. Applications must be submitted for each student, but there is a space in the form to indicate that another application is being submitted for additional research assistants. Faculty members should have identified a student who has already worked on the project or whose existing digital skill set would be beneficial to the ongoing enhancement of the project. These funds are designed to support a particular phase of a digital research project that identifies a completion milestone or deliverable digital artifact. Faculty can submit further applications to continue work with either the current student research assistant or a new student research assistant.
To submit an application, please complete this form.
