HASTAC Scholars brings together dynamic graduate and undergraduate students pushing boundaries in the arts, humanities, sciences, and technology. 

The HASTAC Scholars initiative constitutes an inventive, student-centric community comprising both graduate and undergraduate participants. Annually, a fresh cohort of approximately 100 Scholars is welcomed into the program for a span of 2 years. These Scholars represent diverse academic backgrounds, drawing from a multitude of disciplines, and their affiliations span more than 200 colleges and universities, ranging from intimate liberal arts institutions to expansive research-centric establishments.

Emerging HASTAC Scholars will actively contribute to the development of a vibrant collective that operates at the convergence of technology, arts, humanities, and sciences. Through a plethora of engagements, they will foster this vibrant community – hosting online dialogues, coordinating collaborative book reviews, crafting insightful blog entries, showcasing their research and passions via the HASTAC Scholar Spotlight, participating in Digital Fridays, and undertaking a myriad of other enriching activities.

As a HASTAC Scholar, you will:

– Connect with scholars globally to exchange ideas, collaborate on projects, and form new networks

– Showcase your research through blog posts, videos, interviews, and spotlight features 

– Organize and lead discussions on academic texts, tools, and critical issues in your field

– Conceptualize new digital projects and pedagogies and receive feedback from peers

– Help shape programming that fits your needs and interests as an emerging scholar

We welcome students from all disciplines who want to rethink higher education and work towards more equitable systems. Every HASTAC Scholar contributes uniquely – we can’t wait to see how you will lead and build community.
