This workshop will explore grant support available from NEH for projects that utilize or study the impact of digital technology. NEH is interested in supporting a wide variety of projects that (a) digitize important materials thereby increasing the public’s ability to search and access humanities information; (b) deploy digital technologies and methods to enhance our understanding or a topic or issues; (c) study the impact of digital technology on the humanities. Grants begin at $5,000 with greater funding available depending on the project. The DHI includes joint grants with IMLS and other government agencies. (More information is available at www.neh.gov/grants/digitalhumanities.html)
The workshop will highlight projects NEH hopes to fund, discuss successfully funded proposals, offer suggestions on writing a good proposal, discuss budgeting, note the different funding streams for digital projects at NEH, and highlight the review process. Following the NEH presentation and discussion, the morning will close with a short session conducted by the Arizona Humanities Council highlighting its grants. The workshop concludes by 12:15.
