The ASEH announces three non-residential scholarships funded by the Gale Digital Scholar Lab. 

The ASEH-Gale Non-Residential Fellowship will support research or teaching projects that rely on Gale Primary Sources and use digital humanities methodologies. Award fellows will be given free access to Gale Digital Scholar Lab to use with Environmental History for the duration of their fellowship. Applicants may also request access to other Gale Collections related to their research ( Applicants must make clear how they will use digital methods such as text mining and the corpus of materials in Gale Primary Sources to further their research or teaching. The Digital Scholar Lab is designed for researchers new to digital humanities methods or with no coding experience, and the fellowships do not require prior experience with text mining.

There will be three ASEH-Gale Non-Residential Fellowships available. Each award will be $2,500 USD. Fellowships will be awarded by June 1, 2024 and must be completed by November 30, 2024.  

Recipients of the Gale Fellowship will be invited to submit a panel proposal at the 2025 ASEH Annual Conference, where they will have the opportunity to share the results of their research projects. In addition, Fellows will receive an additional $500 stipend from Gale to present their work at the ASEH 2025 conference in Pittsburgh, to assist with their travel and accommodation expenses.
