  • NEH Office of Digital Humanities- This office within the National
    Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) coordinates
    the NEH’s efforts in the area of digital scholarship. 
    Although all NEH granting programs will fund work with a digital component (e.g., fellowships
    and collaborative grants), the Office of Digital  Humanities runs
    several specific funding programs for digital work including:  the Digging into Data Challenge for research involving large-scale corpora and databases, Start-Up Grants for new digital projects and larger Implementation Grants to move test projects into full implementation, digitization grants to Enrich Digital Collections, and Institutes for Advanced Topics in the Digital Humanities
    . For more information, see the library of
    all NEH funded digital humanities projects
    .
  • ACLS Digital Innovation Fellowships- This program supports digitally based research projects in all disciplines of the humanities and related social sciences.
    It is hoped that projects of successful applicants will help advance
    digital humanistic scholarship by broadening understanding of its nature
    and exemplifying the robust infrastructure necessary for creating such
    works.

  • Alfred P. Sloan Foundation – Program on Digital Information TechnologyThis program has primarily encouraged digitizing material
    in the public domain; assuring public archiving, preservation and open
    access of this material; and fostering its availability to people
    everywhere through such technologies as books on demand. 
  • Andrew W. Mellon Foundation – Program on Scholarly Communications and Information Technology –  The Foundation’s grant-making in scholarly communications has three
    main objectives: (1) to support libraries and archives in their efforts
    to preserve and provide access to materials of broad cultural and
    scholarly significance; (2) to assist scholars in the development of
    specialized resources that promise to open or advance fields of study in
    the humanities and humanistic social sciences; and (3) to strengthen
    the publication of humanistic scholarship and its dissemination to the
    widest possible audience.
  • The Council on Library and Information Resources – An independent, non-profit organization that forges strategies to enhance research, teaching, and learning
    environments in collaboration with libraries, cultural institutions, and
    communities of higher learning. Its goals are to foster new approaches to the management of digital and nondigital
    information resources so that they will be available in the future, for example, through its Mellon-funded program to Catalog Hidden Special Collections and Archives.
  • Google - Digital Humanities Research Awards
    - These 2010 awards support 12 university research groups with
    unrestricted grants for one year, with the possibility of renewal for
    an additional year. The recipients will receive some access to Google
    tools, technologies and expertise as they work to digitize and enable
    computational research with specialized text corpora.
  • The Institute for Advanced Technology in the Humanities (IATH) – Visiting Fellowships - Visiting Fellowships at IATH can take a variety of forms:
    a month-long residency in Charlottesville, a year-long
    networked editing project, an international conference to
    discuss metadata standards, and so forth. These
    Fellowships are awarded on an ad hoc basis, and there is no fixed
    publication deadline. While IATH cannot provide funding to
    Visiting Fellows, IATH staff will provide advice and guidance to help
    applicants secure appropriate funding.
  • The John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation – Digital Media & Learning Initiative – Through grants to scholars, educators, designers, and practitioners,
    MacArthur continues to explore and expand on the hypothesis that
    digital media use is changing how young people think, learn, interact,
    confront ethical dilemmas, and engage in civic life, and that there are
    significant implications for the formal and informal institutions that are responsible for
    educating American youth.
