Grants to USA nonprofits, government agencies, and IHEs for digital humanities projects. Funding is intended for digital projects at any stage of development from the start-up phase, implementation, and long-term sustainability. In honor of the upcoming 250th anniversary of the USA, projects focused on the Declaration of Independence and the impact of the events of 1776 will be given precedence.
Experimentation, reuse, and extensibility are hallmarks of this program, leading to innovative work that can scale to enhance scholarly research, teaching, and public programming in the humanities.
Proposals are welcome for digital initiatives in any area of the humanities.
Through a special partnership with NEH and pending the availability of appropriated funds, the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) anticipates providing additional funding to this program to encourage innovative collaborations between museum or library professionals and humanities professionals to advance preservation of, access to, use of, and engagement with digital collections and services. IMLS and NEH may jointly fund some DHAG projects that involve collaborations with museums and/or libraries.
Digital Humanities Advancement Grants may involve
- Creating or enhancing experimental, computationally-based methods, techniques, or infrastructure that contribute to the humanities;
- Pursuing scholarship that examines the history, criticism, and philosophy of digital culture and its impact on society; or
- Conducting evaluative studies that investigate the practices and the impact of digital scholarship on research, pedagogy, scholarly communication, and public engagement.
