2018-2019 Applications

The Digital Knowledge Center is excited to announce the second year of the Domain Fellows program.

Domain Fellows brings together a cohort of incoming freshmen, current students (sophomores, juniors, or seniors during 2018-2019), and DKC tutors. These students will work throughout the 2018-2019 academic year to develop their own proficiency with Domain of One’s Own while also serving as ambassadors to the rest of the UMW student community for the project.

Participants will be awarded a $500 stipend for their work in the program.
