Grant Program: Fellowships at Digital Humanities Centers

July 27, 2009 | By Brett Bobley

I want to bring to your attention an excellent grant opportunity from the NEH's Division of Research. The Fellowships at Digital Humanities Centers (FDHC) program supports collaborations between digital centers and individual scholars. The program's four goals are to 1) support innovative collaboration on outstanding digital research projects; 2) expand digital literacy and expertise; 3) promote the work of digital humanities centers; and 4) encourage broad and open access to the humanities.

Each fellow must be "sponsored" by a center. The center sends in the grant application. The award provides funds for both a stipend for the fellow and a portion of the center's costs for hosting the fellow.

The intellectual cooperation between the scholar and the center may take many different forms and may involve humanities scholars of any level of digital expertise. Fellows may work exclusively on their own projects in consultation with center staff; collaborate on projects with other scholars affiliated with the center; function as "apprentices" on existing center projects; or any combination of these.

For more information, I urge you to consult the guidelines and talk with the FDHC staff at fdhc@neh.gov. Deadline is September 15, 2009.

[Edit: As of 4/29/2010, the Fellowships at Digital Humanities Centers program is no longer offered by the NEH].
