Applicants may apply as individuals or as pairs. Some pairs will include a language or domain expert working with a data scientist or computational linguist. Other pairs will have two language or domain experts. Team members may be from different institutions. Non-US individuals and those based at non-US institutions are eligible to apply.
The Institute is a series of three workshops during the 2021-2022 academic year. Participants will attend all three workshop and complete a variety of tasks between the workshops, including corpus annotation, model training, readings, and monthly 1-hour check-ins with Institute staff. We expect average time commitment for the full term of the Institute to be approximately 4 hours per week.
Participants should expect to join a remote project kick-off on Friday May 14th, after which they will start sharing project materials and preparing for Workshop 1.
Workshop 2 is tentatively scheduled for January 10-13, 2022 (hopefully onsite in Princeton). Between Workshops 2 and 3, teams will work on their models and prepare their presentations.
Workshop 3 is tentatively scheduled for May 12-13, 2022 (hopefully onsite in Princeton). Attendees should be available for Institute wrap-up activities (reflections, surveys, etc), not to exceed 20 hours, until August 2022.
Each team member (maximum 2) will receive a $1,000 USD stipend for participating in the Institute. Stipends will be distributed in three installments over the course of the Institute.
Additionally, each team will have a budget of $1,000 USD to pay other team support members (for annotation work or other approved project needs).
For onsite workshops in Princeton, the grant will cover travel, lodging, and per diem.
Our grant funding provides up to $400 travel costs per participant. If necessarily, we can discuss travel costs over $400 on a case by case basis.
We are able to offer a letter of support for U.S. visas.
Please check to confirm that you are available to participate during the grant period from May 2021 to August 2022.
