Host Applicants

The mission of the National Digital Stewardship Residency is to build a dedicated community of professionals who will advance our nation's capabilities in managing, preserving and making accessible the record of human achievement held in digital form.  This will enable future generations to fully realize the potential of digital resources now and for years to come.

NDSR Boston seeks institutions in the Boston area to host recent master's or higher degree recipients.  These residents will work onsite at partner institutions for nine months on well-defined digital stewardship projects.  Residents are paid directly by the program through IMLS funds administered by Harvard for the 9 month residency. Participation in this program will offer host institutions:

  • The energy and insight of highly qualified and motivated residents, selected from a national pool of applicants
  • the opportunity to help create a model for a prestigious residency experience in digital stewardship
  • the chance to be an integral part of a collaborative network of host institutions seeking to strengthen the nation's ability to manage, preserve, and make accessible its digital assets
  • the opportunity to help inspire and mentor emerging leaders in the field.
