Request a Grant Writer

Grants to USA nonprofit organizations, government agencies, IHEs, and tribal governments for programs to train humanities scholars to use digital technologies. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take up to a month to complete. Funding is intended to enhance the research and dissemination of humanities disciplines. All other considerations being equal, NEH gives preference to those that provide free access to the public.

The Institutes for Advanced Topics in the Digital Humanities (IATDH) program supports national or regional (multistate) training programs for scholars, humanities professionals, and advanced graduate students to broaden and extend their knowledge of digital humanities. Through this program NEH seeks to increase the number of humanities scholars and practitioners using digital technology in their research and to broadly disseminate knowledge about advanced technology tools and methodologies relevant to the humanities.

Applicants may apply to create institutes that are a single opportunity or are offered multiple times to different audiences. Institutes may be as short as a few days or as long as six weeks and held at a single site or at multiples sites; virtual institutes are also permissible. Training opportunities could be offered before or after regularly occurring scholarly meetings, during the summer months, or during appropriate times of the academic year. The duration of a program should allow for full and thorough treatment of the topic; it should also be appropriate for the intended audience.

These professional development programs may focus on a particular computational method, such as network or spatial analysis. They may also target the needs of a particular humanities discipline or audience.

NEH strongly encourages applicants to develop proposals for multidisciplinary teams of collaborators that will offer the necessary range of intellectual, technical, and practical expertise. Partners and collaborators may be drawn from the private and public sectors and may include appropriate specialists from within and outside the United States.

Institutes for Advanced Topics in the Digital Humanities may be hosted by organizations such as colleges, universities, learned societies, centers for advanced study, libraries or other repositories, and cultural or professional organizations. The host site(s) must be appropriate for the project, providing facilities for scholarship and collegial interaction. Institutes that will be held more than once and at different locations are permissible. Institutes must be held at a location in the United States or its territories.

A list of possible topics and areas that institutes might address can be found at https://www.neh.gov/sites/default/files/inline-files/IATDH-NOFO-March-2020.pdf#page=5.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

NEH generally does not award grants to other federal entities or to applicants whose projects are so closely intertwined with a federal entity that the project takes on characteristics of the federal entity’s own authorized activities. This does not preclude applicants from using grant funds from, or sites and materials controlled by, other federal entities in their projects.

Institutes for Advanced Topics in the Digital Humanities grants may not be used for
- Digitization of collections
- Graduate programs in the digital humanities
- Programs that are not regional (multistate) or national in scope
- Promotion of a particular political, religious, or ideological point of view
- Advocacy of a particular program of social or political action
- Support of specific public policies or legislation
- Lobbying
- Projects that fall outside of the humanities (including the creation or performance of art; creative writing, autobiographies, memoirs, and creative nonfiction; and empirically based social science research or policy studies).

Applications seeking support for training programs on the care and management of—and the creation of intellectual access to—library, archival, and material culture collections, including digital preservation programs, should apply to the Education and Training Grants program of the NEH Division of Preservation and Access.

Applicants seeking support for conferences on topics of major importance in the humanities that will benefit ongoing research should apply to the Collaborative Research program of the NEH Division of Research Programs.
