The Student Innovation Fellowship works with educational institutions, non-profit organizations, and corporations to create content, projects, and internships. You can read about our current collaborations below, and we are always interested exploring new collaborations.


Georgia State University

The SIF program is a Georgia State University initiative, and most of the core members are either students, staff, or faculty. We have worked with the University Library and Departments of English, History, Anthropology, Media Studies, Political Science, Sociology, and others.


Beam Imagination

The SIF program has worked with Beam Imagination on various high-tech imagery and spatial capture projects such as Oakland Cemetery. Students in the program get the opportunity to work with high-end equipment on cutting-edge, experimental projects that help test workflows and capabilities that can be used in other Beam Imagination commercial applications. Our collaborations have led to student internships and employment.


Emory University

The SIF Program regularly collaborates with various units at Emory University, including the Emory Center for Digital Scholarship. We have worked together on projects such as ATLMaps, 3D Atlanta, Unpacking Manuel’s Tavern, and Oakland Cemetery.


Manuel’s Tavern

The SIF program worked with the owner and staff of Manuel’s Tavern to create our preservation project, Unpacking Manuel’s Tavern. The staff facilitated the capture process that documented the tavern, and provided invaluable history and stories about the tavern and the objects on its walls.


Art Papers

The SIF program worked with Hannah Palmer to turn her essay in Art Papers into the Achieving Blankness layer on the ATLMaps platform and with David Naugle and Chris Fite-Wassilak on translating Dead Ends into a map layer.


Foundry 45

The SIF program has worked with Foundry 45 to create student internships in social media, 3D modeling, and VR development.


City of Atlanta

The SIF program collaborated with the City of Atlanta to write a grant application to promote local agriculture.
