Digital Humanities at Berkeley welcomes new proposals for collaborative research projects and creating new digital humanities courses.  Read the full RFP here. Proposals and letters of commitment are due May 26th.  Consultation is available to all prospective applicants.  Please contact to schedule a consultation.  

Collaborative research grants are available to undergraduates, graduate students, faculty members, librarians, and museum curators.  These grants absolutely require an academic and a non-academic partner. Proposals without collaborative partners will not be considered.  Research must be conducted between July 1, 2015 and June 30, 2016.  Grants will not exceed $5,000 dollars for undergraduate and graduate students and $10,000 for faculty and staff.  Proposals will be subject to technical evaluation. Please see the “Technical Evaluation for Digital Humanities Projects” for tips on how to prepare a technically sound proposal, or email to meet with a consultant about your ideas.Edmund Campion speaking at DH Faire 2015

Course grants are available to professors and to SOE and continuing lecturers.  We invite courses in the areas of Digital Humanities Methods, Special Topics in Digital Humanities, and Critical Perspectives in Digital Humanities.  Grants include funding for faculty buyout during both the course development period (AY 2015 - 2016) and the teaching period (AY 2016 - 2017), as well as funding for a GSR and materials.  

Please note: An RFP for New Course Component Grants will be posted in December 2015
