New funding opportunity for research in digital humanities.
The ACLS (American Council of Learned Societies) has announced a new grant program:The Digital Extension Grant Program. This program builds on the existing Digital Innovation Fellowship Program and is available for collaborative teams, not just individual scholars. More details from their announcement:
ACLS Digital Extension Grants may:
- Extend existing digital projects and resources with content that adds diversity or interdisciplinary reach;
- Develop new systems of making existing digital resources available to broader audiences and/or scholars from diverse institutions;
- Foster new team-based work or collaborations that allow scholars from institutions with limited cyberinfrastructure to exploit digital resources; or
- Create new forms and sites for scholarly engagement with the digital humanities and new ways to document and recognize participant engagement.
ACLS will award up to six Digital Extension Grants in this competition year. Each grant provides up to $150,000 in funding, supporting a range of project costs, for terms of 12-18 months.
Proposals must be submitted through ACLS’s online application system, which will begin accepting applications October 15. Further information about the program and eligibility criteria is available online at http://www.acls.org/programs/digitalextension/. The application deadline for the inaugural competition of the Digital Extension Grant program is February 2, 2016.
