Expectations of Fellows
Freedman Fellows are expected to participate in periodic meetings with not only their project groups (which will be created to meet project
needs) but with Freedman Fellow colleagues to provide updates on their projects and to contribute as a group to the development of models,
services and practices for support of scholarship, research and teaching at CWRU. Freedman Fellows are expected to participate in scheduled
meetings and events over the course of the year. Freedman Fellows will be expected to participate in a colloquium to be scheduled during the
2013-14 academic year that will address digital scholarship and future directions for digital scholarship at CWRU. Details are available on the
Freedman Fellows Program website.
Freedman Fellows are expected to confer with Departmental Chairs or Departmental Assistants in setting up accounts for their $3,000 award.
Guidance as to the manner in which the award may be used, as well as additional information is available in the FAQ section of the Freedman
Fellows Program site.
