NEH grants

From: Bonnie Curtin <bcurtin<-a>
Date: Tuesday, May 3, 2005
2005-2006 National Endowment for the Humanities Research and
Development Grants

Deadline for Precis: May 16, 2005

Receipt Deadline: July 1, 2005 (for projects beginning in January

These grants support research and development projects that advance
the nation's capacity to preserve and provide access to humanities
resources. NEH particularly encourages applications that will make
innovative use of digital technology.

Eligible projects might, for example, develop technical standards
and best practices for preserving and creating access to humanities
collections; explore more effective scientific and technical methods
of preserving humanities collections; develop new procedures to
create reference works; or improve the policies and practices of
humanities research institutions affecting preservation and access
on a national level.

Awards normally are for two years and typically range from $150,000
to $390,000.

All applicants for a Research and Development Grant must submit a
precis of the project no later than May 16, 2005. In three to five
pages, the precis should explain the problem the project will
address, the advances the project will make to the work of
preservation and access, and the institutional commitments available
to implement the grant. (Correspondence should be addressed to
preservation<-a t->neh< . >gov.) The division's staff will determine whether
the project is eligible for a grant in this program. Potential
applicants will be notified of the NEH's decision on eligibility by
May 31, 2005.

Application materials and instructions are available at:
