New NEH grant: “Digital Projects for the Public”

I would be honored to facilitate a session where ideas are discussed that might lead to grant applications for the following:

NEH has announced a new funding program titled “Digital Projects for the Public:”

“The Digital Projects for the Public program supports projects such as websites, mobile applications, games, and virtual environments that significantly contribute to the public’s engagement with humanities ideas. Projects must be analytical and deeply grounded in humanities scholarship in a discipline such as history, religion, anthropology, jurisprudence, or art history.  While these projects can take many forms, shapes, and sizes, you should apply to this program primarily to create digital projects or the digital components of a larger project. NEH is a national funding agency, so these projects should demonstrate the potential to attract a broad, general audience.”

Awards are up to $30k (Discovery grants) or $100k (Prototyping grants).

Details below.  First applications due on June 11.
