Deadline near for UI public digital humanities grants

The deadline for the new Digital Studio for Public Humanities (DSPH) grant is next week. Launched in August 2011 by the Office of the Provost, the Digital Studio for the Public Humanities  encourages and supports public digital humanities research, scholarship and learning.

All proposals must be submitted electronically to the Office of the Vice President for Research via the UIRIS website. Applicants are advised to submit applications a few business days in advance of the Monday, February 6, 2012, due date, as problems can arise in the electronic submission process.  OVPR staff is available between 8:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. daily to assist with submissions, according to the grant guidelines.

DSPH projects must be designed to result in the applicant developing research that will result in a digital project with a public dimension. Projects should make a significant contribution to the field, and enhance the applicant’s scholarly reputation among their peers.

The funds are for research conducted June 1, 2012 – September 1, 2013. If you have questions, please direct them to Cheryl Ridgeway (384-3332; ifi-questions@uiowa.edu).
