The Center of Digital Humanities Research (CoDHR) awards grants to TAMU faculty, staff, and graduate students for summer technical consultation for digital humanities projects. These grants give those who are working on projects time with DH experts who are available to offer advice and provide initial support for:
- developing online scholarly communities;
- developing archive and data sites;
- selecting software and initial training;
- directing research related to the digital humanities (environmental scans, ontology development); and
- effectively managing the project.
Awards are given in terms of number of staff hours allotted to the project. Applicants are expected to perform some initial research into project needs and appropriate technologies, and applications will be evaluated on the basis of: clearly articulated project goals, feasibility given the limited duration of the grant term (June 1, 2021 – August 31, 2021), and appropriateness given CoDHR’s mission and areas of expertise.
Application Deadline is March 31, 2021
To apply complete and submit the 2021 Summer Technical Assistance Grant Application form with the following information:
