Description:

Request a Grant Writer

Grants to USA nonprofit organizations, IHEs, government agencies, and tribal governments for projects that deepen the understanding of technology-based humanities content. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take up to a month to complete. The purpose of grant funding is to interpret and analyze humanities content in primarily digital platforms and formats, such as websites, mobile applications and tours, interactive touch screens and kiosks, games, and virtual environments.

All Digital Projects for the Public projects should 

  • Present analysis that deepens public understanding of significant humanities ideas; 
  • Incorporate sound humanities scholarship; 
  • Involve humanities scholars in all phases of development and production; 
  • Include appropriate digital media professionals; 
  • Reach a broad public through a realistic plan for development, marketing, and distribution; 
  • Create appealing digital formats for the general public; and 
  • Demonstrate the capacity to sustain themselves. 

All projects should demonstrate the potential to attract a broad, general, nonspecialist audience, either online or in person at venues such as museums, libraries, or other cultural institutions. Applicants may also choose to identify particular communities and groups, including students, to whom a project may have particular appeal. 

The Digital Projects for the Public program includes three funding categories: Discovery, Prototyping, and Production. Awards are available to support preliminary research, to design or create prototypes, and to produce the final version of the project.
