I am extremely happy to announce this year’s Cultural Heritage Informatics Fellows. The CHI Fellowship program offers MSU graduate students (in cultural heritage focused departments) with the theoretical and methodological skills necessary to creatively apply information, computing, and communication technologies to cultural heritage materials. In addition, the fellowship provides graduate students with the opportunity to influence the current state of cultural heritage informatics, and become leaders in the future of cultural heritage informatics. During the course of their fellowship (which lasts an academic year), fellows will develop a significant and innovative cultural heritage informatics project.
This year’s fellows show great promise, and I’m very much looking forward to their projects and their contributions to the field of cultural heritage informatics.
