Updates & Changes to ODH Grant Programs

April 3, 2011 | By Jason Rhody

[updated June 23, 2011]

The next deadline for the popular NEH Digital Humanities Start-Up Grant (SUG) program will be September 27, 2011. 

We also wanted to let you know that there is an important change to the SUG program.  While in the past we have offered two deadlines per fiscal year (usually one in the Fall and one in the Spring), we are now moving to one SUG deadline per year.  Applications will be due in September for projects beginning the following April.  Get started now!


Why the change?  Well, we aren’t ready to share all the details yet, but in lieu of the second SUG deadline, we are preparing to offer a new grant program, tentatively entitled Advanced Projects in the Digital Humanities (APDH) called Digital Humanities Implementation Grants (DHIG) .  This program is being designed to fund the implementation of major projects that have successfully completed an initial start-up phase and have demonstrated their value to the field.  Much more to come about this new program in the near future.  Read about the DHIG program here.


Meanwhile, get working on those Start-Up Grants.  Remember that we’re always happy to read drafts submitted at least 6 weeks prior to the deadline, and we’re always here for advice.  If you have any questions, feel free to contact us.
