The Coalition for Networked Information (CNI) has issued an invitation for applicants for the 2018 Paul Even Peters Fellowship. Established to honor the memory of CNI’s founding directory, the fellowship is awarded every two years to students pursuing graduate studies in librarianship, the information sciences, or a closely related field that advance the frontiers of digital information and technology.
Two fellowships will be awarded in 2018: One to a doctoral/PhD student in the amount of $5,000 per year, to be awarded two consecutive years; and one to a master’s student in the amount of $2,500 per year, to be awarded two consecutive years.
CNI is looking for applicants who demonstrate intellectual and personal qualities “consistent with those of Paul Evan Peters,” including:
- A commitment to use of digital information and advanced technology to enhance scholarship, intellectual productivity and public life;
- An interest in the civic responsibilities of information professionals and a commitment to democratic values;
- A positive and creative approach to overcoming personal, technological, and bureaucratic challenges, and
- Humor, vision, humanity, and imagination.
