JISC/NEH Transatlantic Digitization Collaboration Grants

September 14th, 2007 by Ross Scaife

NEH Program Officer Jason Rhody sends the following announcement:

As part of its Digital Humanities Initiative, the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) in the United States is joining with the Joint Information Systems Committee (JISC) in the United Kingdom to offer support for digitization projects in the humanities. These grants provide funding for one year of development in any of the following areas:

  • new digitization projects and pilot projects,
  • the addition of important materials to existing digitization projects, or
  • the development of infrastructure (either technical “middleware,” tools, or knowledge-sharing) to support U.S.-England digitization work.

Collaboration between U.S. and English institutions is a key requirement for this grant category. Awards range from $100,000 to $240,000 (approximately £50,000 to £120,000) for a one-year period, with projects starting from April 2008 for up to 12 months. The receipt deadline for applications is November 29, 2007.
