Guidelines for DFG/NEH Joint Digitization Projects

July 18, 2008 | By Jason Rhody
We have good news for those of you eagerly anticipating the full set of guidelines for the new 2008 Call for Joint Digitization Projects, which is part of the DFG/NEH Bilateral Digital Humanities Program that we announced a few weeks ago.  The Digitization guidelines are now available on the NEH Web site and the DFG Web site.  Note that while there may be some administrative differences between the two sets of guidelines, the core requirements are the same.  At least one German and one U.S. institution will collaborate on a single proposal, which will be submitted to NEH by the U.S. partner and to DFG by the German partner.  The combined sum of the request can range from $100,000 to $350,000 (approximately 70,000 to 240,000 € ) for projects lasting up to three years.  The deadline for applications is October 15, 2008.  All of the details are available in the guidelines, and we are always available to discuss questions and potential projects via email or phone.   We’ll even read and comment on drafts if you submit them at least six weeks before the deadline.  And remember--add ODH Update to your RSS feed reader so that when the 2008 Call for Bilateral Symposia and Workshops guidelines are ready, you’ll be among the first to know.
