These grants provide three levels of funding in support of the implementation of experimental projects—from the start-up to implementation phase—that demonstrate their value to the humanities, including efforts to reinvigorate existing or dormant projects in innovative ways.
These grants support projects that significantly contribute to the public’s engagement with the humanities. The program offers three levels of support for digital projects: grants for discovery, prototyping, and production projects.
Subtitled "Enabling New Scholarship through Increasing Access to Unique Materials," this national competition promotes and funds digitizing collections of rare and unique content in cultural memory institutions (CLIR).
These fellowships support individual scholars pursuing research projects that require digital expression and digital publication. To be eligible for this special opportunity, an applicant’s plans for digital publication must be essential to the project’s research goals.
This program strengthens efforts to extend the life of humanities collections (including, not limited to books, art, photographs, sound and video, and digital objects) and make their intellectual content widely accessible, often through the use of digital technology.
