The Center for Research and Development of Digital Libraries annually recruits two students from a pool of top graduate students from the School of Information and Library Science (SILS) at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. The appointed students must have demonstrated potential in database administration or digital librarianship.
The CRADLE Fellows program is a one-year appointment, which provides students an opportunity to contribute to various CRADLE federation projects and gain expertise within their field. The fellowship offers a twenty-hour per week assignment under the guidance of one of the CRADLE faculty mentors. Fellowship recipients receive a stipend.
Selection for CRADLE fellowships is competitive, based on skills, experience and interest and is open to all SILS graduate students. Fellowships are awarded beginning in the fall semester. To be eligible to apply for a CRADLE fellowship, students must be a current or accepted SILS graduate student and enrolled in course(s) for the fall semester.
If you would like to apply for a CRADLE fellowship, please contact the SILS Student Services Manager, Lara Bailey. You will be asked to submit a one-page description of your interests and background and why you would like to be a CRADLE fellow. The CRADLE executive committee makes awards decisions and research assignments.
*Currently, there is no funding for the fellowships.
