- 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
- Alfred P. Sloan Foundation – Program on Digital Information Technology – This 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.
