The American Council of Learned Societies (ACLS) is pleased to announce the third annual competition for ACLS Digital Extension Grants. The grants, which are made possible by the generous assistance of The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, seek to advance humanities scholarship by enhancing established digital projects, extending their reach to new communities of users, and supporting teams of scholars at all career stages as they participate in digital research. The program is especially committed to fostering new connections among scholars from across the spectrum of US higher education institutions.
ACLS will award five Digital Extension Grants in this competition year. Each grant provides a maximum award of up to $150,000 for a variety of project costs, including activities that promote new collaborations and community building activities across institutions. Eligibility criteria, application instructions, and further information about the program are available online at www.acls.org/programs/digitalextension/.
Proposals must be submitted through ACLS’s Online Fellowship and Grant Application (OFA) system. The application deadline for the 2017-18 competition of the Digital Extension Grant program is 9pm EST, January 10, 2018.
