New Joint NEH-Mellon Fellowships for Digital Publication

The National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) recently announced on their blog a new fellowship opportunity offered jointly by the NEH and the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. The fellowship seeks to address the growing prevalence of digital scholarship in the humanities, and according to the blog post:

“[…] to encourage scholars engaged in humanities research that requires digital formats and digital publication. Eligible projects must be conceived as digital because the nature of the research and the topics addressed demand presentation beyond traditional print publication. For example, for scholarship in fields like art history, musicology, or media studies, an interactive digital publication may allow the author to use multimedia to make arguments or illustrate critical points that would be otherwise difficult or impossible in traditional print formats.”

These fellowships are intended for individual researchers and scholars, and application guidelines can be found on the NEH website here. The application deadline for the initial cycle of NEH-Mellon Fellowships for Digital Publication is April 28.
