Digital Scholarship Fellows

"Investigate and gain proficiency with a variety of digital platforms and critically reflect on the related impacts on our culture and society.”  

We are pleased to present the Digital Scholarship Fellows Program, offered by the Libraries' Digital Scholarship Group in partnership with the Sophomore Journeys Grant. 

The program is designed to enable sophomores to investigate and gain proficiency with a variety of digital platforms, while also critically reflecting on the related impacts on our culture and society.

What to Expect

Fellows will be paid for 5-6 hours of work per week. Activities will include monthly DSF collaboration meetings and digital skills workshops. Meetings and workshops will be relaxed and productive to help guide progress through the program.

Developing digital skills from workshops will enhance scholarly research used in a variety of collaborative digital scholarship projects on and off campus. Upon completion of the program, fellows will have a foundation of various digital skills and project experience. This experience will enhance future college and professional work at St. Lawrence and beyond!

Class of 2021

A few months ago, I was given the opportunity to expand my knowledge of the digital field throughout the Digital Scholarship Fellows program. Over that time, I have learned a great amount that I am able to confidently incorporate in my other courses such as some basic coding skills, exploring Microsoft Excel and making timelines. The fellowship has helped me to understand what goes on” behind the scenes” in the digital world and this brought me to appreciate the work done in this field. Aside from building my technological skills, I had the opportunity to work with and form relationships with five other sophomore fellows and four members the St. Lawrence University staff, who facilitated meetings. My favorite part about this program is how interactive meetings are and the fact that we are all able to learn from each other and build on each other’s ideas.
