The HASTAC Scholars initiative constitutes an inventive, student-centric community comprising both graduate and undergraduate participants.

Emerging HASTAC Scholars will actively contribute to the development of a vibrant collective that operates at the convergence of technology, arts, humanities, and sciences.
