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 that promote a deeper understanding of American history and culture and that advance civics education and knowledge of governments are encouraged.
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.
