FDHCs support collaboration between digital centers and individual scholars. An award provides funding for both a stipend for the fellow while in residence at the center and a portion of the center's costs for hosting a fellow. The intellectual cooperation between the visiting scholar and the center may take many different forms and may involve humanities scholars of any level of digital expertise. Each application will include one digital humanities center and one individual scholar. Center eligibility is limited to digital humanities centers affiliated with either American institutions of higher education or U.S. nonprofit organizations or institutions with IRS 501(c)(3) tax exempt status. Centers may submit one application per deadline; individual scholars may apply in collaboration with only one digital center per deadline.
The National Historical Publications and Records Commission promotes the preservation and use of America's documentary heritage essential to understanding our democracy, history, and culture. The focus of the NHPRC's Electronic Records grant program is to support projects that will lead to sustainable electronic records archives that preserve digital records with enduring historical value. Projects cannot use grant funds to digitize historical records. Applicants who wish to digitize records should refer to the Digitizing Historical records announcement. Applications should be for projects that: Develop institutional capacity through program evaluation and planning; Create institutional capacity with program start-up support; Expand the scope of existing programs; or Develop electronic records service providers that can offer reliable preservation services to archives.
The National Historical Publications and Records Commission promotes the preservation and use of America's documentary heritage essential to understanding our democracy, history and culture. The Commission seeks proposals that use cost-effective methods to digitize nationally-significant historical record collections and make the digital versions freely available on the Internet. Projects must make use of existing holdings of historical repositories and be made up of entire collections or series. The materials should already be available to the public at the archives and described so that projects can re-use existing information to create metadata for the digitized collection.
