PROGRAM DESCRIPTION
The CHSS Center for the Digital Humanities is pleased to announce two summer grant opportunities open to all full-time CHSS faculty: a Digital Humanities Seed Grant and a Digital Humanities Project Grant. The objective of these grants is to foster research, scholarship, and external grant-seeking in the Digital Humanities. Collaborations among individuals, departments, colleges, and institutions are encouraged; however, the principal investigator of the grant application must have an appointment in the College of Humanities and Social Sciences.

Applications will be reviewed by the CHSS Center for the Digital Humanities Faculty Advisory Committee and recommendations provided to the Dean for final determination.

GRANT CATEGORIES
CHSS Digital Humanities Seed Grant ($1,000) – Two Awards
The CHSS Center for the Digital Humanities Seed Grants are intended to provide summer stipends for developing external grant applications focused on the Digital Humanities. Projects already receiving Dean’s office funding will not be considered. The period for the grant development is summer of 2018.

Those awarded Seed Grants agree to:

  • submit an Executive Summary to AJ Kelton, Director of the CDH. The Executive Summary is due 14 days after the first day of classes of the Fall semester following the award period.
  • make a 45-minute presentation at either the Fall or Spring Digital Humanities Day, as indicated on the CDH Summer Grant application as well as a very brief synopsis of the research project at an agreed upon college meeting (subject to scheduling).
  • Provide the director of the CDH with a copy of the submitted external grant application and proof of submission.

CHSS Digital Humanities Project Grant ($4,000) – Two Awards
The CHSS Center for the Digital Humanities Project Grants are intended to provide summer stipends to support an ongoing Digital Humanities research project. The work is to take place, and funds expensed, no later than August 31st, 2018. Projects already receiving Dean’s Office funding are ineligible; those with existing external grant funding will have priority.

  • submit an Executive Summary to AJ Kelton, Director of the CDH. The Executive Summary is due 14 days after the first day of classes of the Fall semester following the award period.
