Humanities New York and its nine partner universities, comprising the Humanities Centers Initiative, invite grant proposals from advanced graduate students in support of public programming and projects. for the 2022-2023 Graduate Student Public Humanities Fellowship. Grant awards will be up to $4,000.

2022-2023 GC Digital Fellowship (deadline: 3/28/22)

GC Digital Initiatives is searching for new doctoral students to join our dynamic team. Together, GC Digital Fellows lead week-long digital research institutes, teach workshops on technical skills, create resources for GC students and faculty, and build digital projects that make use of the affordances of emerging technology while considering the ethical, social, and political stakes. In fact, the GC Digital Fellows have been recognized for their approach to teaching digital research skills by receiving a National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) award to create curricula and lead professional development workshops in digital humanities.

GC Digital Fellows who join our team this year will play an instrumental role in opening the CUNY Center for Digital Scholarship and Data Visualization (currently under construction).

Graduate Center doctoral students at any level are eligible to apply, and we encourage applications from women and gender minorities and BIOPC. We hope to add strength to our program in graphic and web design, Python, and mapping; however, this is not an exhaustive list. We encourage those with other skills and interests to also apply.

To get a better sense of our work, you can read the GC Digital Fellows’ blog, Tagging the Tower, and our semesterly blog post “What is GCDI?” You can also read our most recent annual report. You can also read about what GC Digital Fellows have gone on to accomplish once they have left the Graduate Center.​


Compensation for the fellowship will be a minimum of $29,115 for the academic year. Fellows will be appointed to the Graduate Center payroll as Graduate Assistant Bs (GAB) at their own current rate and receive a Provost’s Award that will pay through the Office of Financial Aid. The GAB title provides eligibility to purchase the low-cost NYSHIP health insurance as well as in-state tuition remission for fellows who are within their first 10 registered semesters of doctoral study. Fellows who are past their 10 registered semesters of doctoral study will be eligible to receive in-state tuition remission at the Level 3 rate per the new PSC-CUNY contract. (This benefit provides for this tuition remission for a maximum of 4 semesters past the student’s 10 registered semesters.)

The initial DF appointment is for one year (exact dates vary and will be specified upon appointment). Determinations of DF re-appointments will be made on an annual basis up to three years, depending on individual eligibility and GC needs.

Demography Graduate Center Fellowship (deadline: 3/23/22)

The Demography Program at the CUNY Graduate Center is soliciting applications from current GC doctoral students who are interested in receiving a 3-year fellowship to pursue their demographic studies. This fellowship will be offered to a student entering their 2nd or 3rd year in the Fall of 2022.

Obligations of the Demography Fellow: Importantly, the obligations differ from those attached to the standard GCF. Each year, the fellowship recipient would serve as an apprentice (for 15 hours per week during the academic year) to a mentor drawn from the demography faculty affiliates at the CUNY Institute for Demographic Research (CIDR). This obligation takes the place of obligations, if any, associated with their previous financial support. If the student had been required to teach for their fellowship in the past, or if they had no obligation in the past, the student each year would instead now serve as a research apprentice. The student’s preferences would be considered in the assignment of the mentor. Mentor selection would aim to ensure both productivity and to initiate or augment the student’s hands-on research experience.

Further, Demography Fellows would be required to complete the Demography Certificate (which typically does not add to the courseload in the student’s home program) and to attend all CIDR-sponsored seminars/workshops. Fellows are also expected to submit a paper or poster to the Annual Meetings of the Population Association of America, funding for which will be covered by CIDR.

Students may also apply for CIDR’s Supplementary Fellowship, which provides an annual stipend of $5,000, eligible for renewal for a 2nd year. Details can be found at:
