Message 1: NEH: Digital Humanities Start-Up Grants
Date: 17-Sep-2006
From: Brett Bobley <bbobleyneh.gov>
Subject: NEH: Digital Humanities Start-Up Grants

Deadline: November 15, 2006 & April 3, 2007

Digital Humanities Start-Up Grants is the first new program under the NEH's new
Digital Humanities Initiative. The name "Start-Up Grant" is deliberately
evocative of the technology start-up--a company like an Apple Computer or a
Google that took a brilliant idea and, with a small amount of seed money, was
able to grow it into a new way of doing business. NEH's Digital Humanities
Start-Up Grants will encourage scholars with bright new ideas and provide the
funds to get their projects off the ground. Some projects will be practical,
others completely blue sky. Some will fail while others will succeed wildly and
develop into important projects. But all will incorporate new ways of studying
the humanities.

The cross-divisional nature of the Start-Up Grants is a key. Applicants don't
need to be concerned with determining exactly which NEH division or program is
best suited for their projects. Their job is to be innovative and the NEH's job
is to provide the funding they need to be successful. NEH staff will work with
potential applicants in the pre-application stages to help them craft their

NEH Digital Humanities Start-Up Grants are offered for the planning or initial
stages of digital humanities initiatives in all areas of NEH concern: research,
publication, preservation, access, teacher training, and dissemination in
informal or formal educational settings. The maximum award is $30,000.
Applications should describe the concept or problem that is being addressed, the
plan of work, the experience of the project team as it relates to the plan, and
the intended outcomes of both the grant and the larger project that the grant
will initiate.

Application guidelines for this program are available at:
