National Endowment for the Humanities Announces Digital Humanities Start-Up Grants Program
Deadline: November 15, 2006 and April 3, 2007
Digital Humanities Start-Up Grants is the first new program under the National Endowment for the Humanities' new Digital Humanities Initiative. NEH's Digital Humanities Start-Up Grants are designed to encourage scholars with bright new ideas and provide the funds to get their projects off the ground. All projects will incorporate new ways of studying the humanities.
Start-Up Grants are offered for the planning or initial stages of digital humanities initiatives in all areas of NEH concern: research, publication, preservation, access, teacher training, and dissemination in informal or formal educational settings. Applications should describe the concept or problem that is being addressed, the plan of work, the experience of the project team as it relates to the plan, and the intended outcomes of both the grant and the larger project that the grant will initiate.
Eligible applicants are U.S. nonprofit organizations or institutions; state and local governmental agencies and Native American tribal organizations; and U.S. citizens or foreign nationals who have been living in the United States or its jurisdictions for at least the three years immediately prior to the application deadline. Applicants affiliated with an eligible institution must apply through an institution (ordinarily their own). Adjunct faculty may apply as individuals. Project directors cannot be degree candidates.
