ACLS Digital Extension Grants
American Council of Learned Societies (ACLS) inviteapplications for the Grant program, made possible by the generous assistance of The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. This program supports digitally based research projects in all disciplines of the humanities and related social sciences. It is hoped that these grants will help advance the digital transformation of humanities scholarship by extending the reach of existing digital projects to new communities of users. Grants will support teams of scholars as they enhance existing digital projects in ways that engage new audiences across a range of academic communities and institutions. To this end, projects supported by these grants may:
- Extend existing digital projects and resources with content that adds diversity or interdisciplinary reach;
- Develop new systems of making existing digital resources available to broader audiences and/or scholars from diverse institutions;
- Foster new team-based work or collaborations that allow scholars from institutions with limited cyberinfrastructure to exploit digital resources;
- Create new forms and sites for scholarly engagement with the digital humanities.
