How to Get a Grant from NEH


The above title, "How to Get a Grant from NEH," is not my own, but from an article in the July/August issue of Humanities magazine, now available online at the NEH Web site.  If you've not had the opportunity to attend a grants workshop or discuss a project with a program officer, this is a great introduction to some of the most important--and often most overlooked--bits of advice when applying for a grant (such as "Read the guidelines!").  Also included is an overview of the review process, an introduction to, and the reminder that NEH program officers are always available to answer questions.  Highly recommended reading for all potential applicants.

CALL FOR IDEAS: NEH Seeking Research Ideas Using High Performance Computing

The NEH's Office of Digital Humanities (ODH) recently launched a Humanities High Performance Computing (HHPC) initiative. As part of this initiative we're offering several grant programs and other opportunities to provide time on the U.S. Department of Energy’s high performance computers, as well as grant money and training. NEH established this program to encourage humanities scholars to think about how high performance computers might help them in their research, and to take advantage of existing high performance computer resources.

HHPC and T-REX in the News


In the May 8th edition of HPCwire, John West wrote a piece called “High Performance Humanities” that discusses the NEH’s new HHPC initiative.  It was great to see coverage of the new initiative in a leading HPC publication.  One of our stated goals here in the Office of Digital Humanities is to inspire collaborations across disciplines.  My hope is that the computing specialists who are regular readers of HPCwire will take an interest in the many computing challenges we have here in the humanities.  In a similar vein, I also note that the Text Analysis Developers Alliance has just announced a new competition called T-REX that hopes to inspire text analysis projects, including those that take advantage of high performance computing.  Over the next few years it will be interesting to see what HPC can bring to humanities research.
