Digital Humanities Start-Up Grants

The National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) and the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) invite applications to the Digital Humanities Start-Up Grants program. This program is designed to encourage innovations in the digital humanities. By awarding relatively low-dollar grants to support the planning stages, NEH aims to encourage the development of projects that are particularly innovative and have the potential to make a positive impact on the humanities. NEH and IMLS encourage library and museum officials as well as scholars, scientists, educational institutions, and other non-profit organizations to apply for these grants and to collaborate when appropriate. Proposals should be for the planning or initial stages of digital initiatives in any area of the humanities. All applicants must propose an innovative approach, method, tool, or idea that has not been used before in the humanities. This Grants support full-time or part-time activities for periods up to eighteen months.
