Deadline Date: 01/16/2018

Agency: National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH)

Scope: Updated guidelines will be posted on the NEH website at least two months in advanced of the deadline. The following information is from last year, but is often the same or similar in subsequent years. Digital Humanities Advancement Grants (DHAG) support digital projects throughout their lifecycles, from early start-up phases through implementation and long-term sustainability. Experimentation, reuse, and extensibility are hallmarks of this grant category, leading to innovative work that can scale to enhance research, teaching, and public programming in the humanities. This program combines the former Digital Humanities Start-Up Grants and Digital Humanities Implementation Grants programs. Proposals are welcome for digital initiatives in any area of the humanities. Through a special partnership, 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. Through this partnership, IMLS and NEH may jointly fund some DHAG projects that involve collaborations with museums and/or libraries. Funding: Grants are available for early-stage planning, development, and implementation. Level I awards range from $5,000 to $40,000. Level II awards range from $40,001 to $75,000. Level III awards range from $100,000 to $325,000 for up to three years.
