The Digital Humanities at Oxford Summer School will offer a small number of bursaries for summer school attendance to students and early-career researchers.


The aim of the scheme is to enable students and researchers to go to an event they would not usually have the opportunity to attend, then disseminate what they have learnt to others within the field. This could be in the form of blogs or social media activity during the summer school, a report on their experience, a podcast or a presentation/workshop at their own institution.


All bursaries cover the relevant registration fee for the Summer School. There are also a limited number which cover travel and accommodation – please indicate when you apply whether you would like to be considered for the travel and accommodation bursaries.

Deadline for applications: midnight, Monday 24 Feb

If you have any problems with the application process, please contact events@oerc.ox.ac.uk.
