The Conference on College Composition and Communication (CCCC) Wikipedia Initiative is accepting applications for the 2021-22 CCCC Wikipedia Graduate Fellowship Program. Graduate students in writing studies and related fields are invited to apply. The fellowship is aimed at emerging scholars who are 1) invested in knowledge equity and French and Spanish scholarly communities and 2) interested in hands-on experience with Wikipedia and the digital public humanities.
Established in 2019, the CCCC Wikipedia Initiative proceeds from the conviction that public scholarship and knowledge equity on Wikipedia serve as fundamental groundwork for social justice. We are developing skills, cultivating inclusive community, and building structures of support and recognition for scholars of writing, rhetoric, literacy, and language studies who want to engage with Wikipedia as a form of global public scholarship.
2021-22 CCCC Wikipedia Graduate Fellows will receive a $2,000 stipend in recognition of their one-year appointment to advance and expand the work of the CCCC Wikipedia Initiative. Applications are due Monday, August 2, 2021.
