Applications to the HASTAC Scholars program are due on October 15. On September 25, a little over two weeks before the due date, HASTAC Scholars Director Kalle Westerling hosts a Twitter chat to answer any questions you may have about the application process.
It's easy to join: Just tweet any questions you may have, before or during the twitter chat, and add #HASTACScholars to your tweet!
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.
We are especially encouraging people who identify as members of historically underrepresented or marginalized groups to apply to the program.
