Grant Opportunity Reminder
National Endowment for the Humanities
Humanities Collections and Reference Resources Grants
Receipt deadline: July 19, 2012 (for projects beginning May 2013)
The NEH Humanities Collections and Reference Resources program supports projects that provide an essential underpinning for scholarship, education, and public programming in the humanities. Funding from this program strengthens efforts to extend the life of collections materials and make their intellectual content widely accessible. Awards are also made to create various reference resources that facilitate the use of cultural materials. Maximum award is $350,000 for up to three years.
Applicants may request support for implementing preservation and access measures, such as:
- Arrangement and description; cataloging
- Preserving and improving access to born-digital resources
Rehousing and conservation treatment, within the context of projects that also create and enhance access to collections
NEW this year!
HCRR Foundations Grants
To help in the formative stages of initiatives to preserve and create access to humanities collections or to produce reference resources, grants of up to $40,000 will support planning, assessment, and pilot activities that incorporate expertise from a mix of professional domains. These projects might encompass efforts to prepare for establishing intellectual control of collections, to solidify collaborative frameworks and strategic plans for complex digital reference resources, or to produce preliminary versions of online collections or resources.
