About the NYCDH Student Digital Award: First offered in 2014, the NYCDH graduate student awards are open to graduate students from the NYC metropolitan area who are pursuing DH projects. Applications are judged by a board selected from the NYCDH steering committee. Winning projects are selected based on intellectual contributions to the field, innovative uses of technology, and work plans that are clear and reasonable given the time and funding available.
Previous Winners are listed in the project award description page: https://nycdh.org/nyc-dh-graduate-student-project-award/. To learn more about NYCH and to join our community, see https://nycdh.org/about/.
