We are excited to share that an updated notice of funding opportunity for the Digital Humanities Advancement grants (DHAG) program is available! The program, which NEH's Office of Digital Humanities (ODH) has offered since 2017, is largely unchanged, but we would like to flag a few small updates below.

ODH is launching a new program for individuals and collaborative teams to explore the impact of technology on society. This program, called Dangers and Opportunities of Technology: Perspectives from the Humanities (DOT) has a February 2, 2023, deadline. As a result of this dedicated funding stream, the DHAG program will temporarily suspend support for projects that are solely focused on examining the history, criticism, ethics, or philosophy of digital culture or technology and its impact on society.

We have also been able to increase the upper limit for Level I projects to $75,000, so now is a great time to submit early-stage and high-risk (but high-reward) projects!

Other changes include requiring a brief “Overview of the Project” section that allows you to summarize your project's key goals, activities, and outputs at the start of the application narrative and requiring a budget form and budget justification for any subawards.

The 2023 deadlines for the DHAG program will be January 12 and June 15. A recorded program webinar will be available October 27, 2022. We encourage potential applicants to review the materials on the DHAG program page, consider submitting a draft application or brief description of your project for feedback, and reach out to @email with any questions. We are looking forward to hearing your ideas and seeing some exciting applications in 2023!
