NEH Digital Humanities Advancement Grants

Deadline: June 24, 2021

Proposals are welcome in any area of the humanities from organizations of all types and sizes. The Digital Humanities Advancement Grants program (DHAG) supports innovative, experimental, and/or computationally challenging digital projects at different stages of their lifecycles, from early start-up phases through implementation and sustainability.  Experimentation, reuse, and extensibility are valued in this program, leading to work that can scale to enhance scholarly research, teaching, and public programming in the humanities. The program also supports scholarship that examines the history, criticism, and philosophy of digital culture or technology and its impact on society. 

IMLS funding will encourage innovative collaborations between library and archives professionals, humanities professionals, and relevant public communities that advance preservation of, access to, and public engagement with digital collections and services to empower community learning, foster civic cohesion, and strengthen knowledge networks. This could include collaborations with community-based archives, community-driven efforts, and institutions or initiatives representing the traditionally underserved. 

The maximum award amounts are:
  • Level I: $50,000
  • Level II: $100,000
  • Level III: $325,000 in outright funds, with an additional $50,000 in matching funds
Examples of an expected output include: article; digital material and publication; workshop; report; teaching resources; digital infrastructure; and software. Projects can be carried out during a time period of up to thirty-six months.

Application: Please visit the website at for more details and application information.
