NEH Posts Guidelines for NEH Fellowships at Digital Humanities Centers

I'm very happy to say that the NEH's Division of Research has just posted the guidelines for our new "NEH Fellowships at Digital Humanities Centers" program ("FDHC" for short).  The NEH first announced this program back at the CNI conference in December of 2007, but now the full guidelines are available.  I would encourage all humanities centers to check out this new program and consider applying.  The deadline is September 15th, 2008.  In a nutshell, FDHC allows centers to apply for funding to bring in a visiting fellow to work on one or more humanities projects. [Edit: As of 4/29/2010, the Fellowships at Digital Humanities Centers program is no longer offered by the NEH].
