Now is the time to apply for HASTAC Scholars, or encourage your students to apply! The application period closes on October 15. Please apply here or share this link with interested colleagues and students: http://bit.ly/apply-to-hastac-scholars.
HASTAC Scholars is a student-centered network of Ph.D., Masters, and some undergraduate students who are interested in engaging the intersections of technology and learning. HASTAC Scholars apply this interest in varied ways, both in-person and online: by writing about their own work—their research questions; by amplifying amazing things happening on their respective campuses and regions; and by helping to develop online conversations, hosting local events, and representing HASTAC at other events. Scholars organize Twitter chats and host webinars to share tools, expertise, and resources. Taken together, these activities provide opportunities not only to share knowledge with others, but also to learn from peers about various technologies and tools, all while gaining expertise in particular skill sets, such as in conducting interviews, writing reviews, and participating in other intellectual, artistic, or community-based conversations.
All graduate and undergraduate students are welcome to apply. Scholars who identify as members of historically underrepresented or marginalized groups are especially encouraged to apply, as are groups of students who are part of the same program. The application is not lengthy, and the program connects students with a valuable network of peers across the country.
Starting last year, Scholars will be admitted for a two-year cycle. During their second year, Scholars are encouraged to take on greater leadership and peer mentoring roles. We think that this extended timeline will go a long way toward building peer mentorship structures and keeping consistent activity and energy on the site year-round.
If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to email the Director of HASTAC Scholars, Mr. Kalle Westerling at firstname.lastname@example.org.
