Call for Proposals in the Digital Humanities

The Research Technology Faculty Advisory Board (FAB), in partnership with the Center for the Humanities and NYU Libraries, invites applications for a second series of Digital Humanities Seed Grants and also Digital Humanities Graduate Student Summer Fellowships. 

The Digital Humanities Seed Grants are intended to fund the initial development of new research projects that will analyze digital sources, apply algorithmic methods to humanities data, or create digital publications, exhibits, or websites. The program will fund the initial steps of projects that may go on to receive greater funding from other sources or otherwise build NYU’s institutional capacity in Digital Humanities work. Grants may range in size between $5,000 and $20,000. Collaborative projects are encouraged, but must include at least one NYU faculty member in the humanities. 

To apply for a Digital Humanities Graduate Student Summer Fellowship, eligible students will need to articulate their own project, which might involve engaging with digital humanities methods as the basis for a dissertation chapter or article, building a digital public humanities project or exhibit. Project work will take place during Summer 2021, and participants will report on work completed at a Fall 2021 event.

The deadline for both programs is midnight EST, March 7, 2021.
