The CLS INFRA Fellowship Programme provides access to a wide range of data, tools and knowledge. Scholars from literary studies or with an interest in Computational Literary Studies methods are invited to apply for a fellowship grant in one of our infrastructure providers. Successful applicants will not only obtain free-of-charge physical access to the infrastructure, but in the context of the overall project they will become part of the larger CLS community. By responding to one of our calls, applicants may have the opportunity to:

  • Interact with experts;
  • Receive advice on ongoing projects;
  • Learn how to use the ecosystem of data, tools and standards;
  • Assemble new literary corpora;
  • Profit from hands-on training and support.

Fellowships grants will cover housing and subsistence costs as well as travel to and from the host institution. The CLS INFRA Fellowships are funded by the European Union under the rules of transnational access.

Calls for fellowship grants will be launched twice a year for a total of six calls. Scholars from the European Union and beyond are eligible to apply. CLS INFRA fellowship grants will typically cover travel and subsistence costs. Successful applicants are expected to join the chosen infrastructure for a period of 8 to 12 weeks. However, shorter residencies will be also taken into consideration.

The first call will be open from Monday 1 November 2021 to Monday 6 December 2021.
