Deadline: January 10, 2018

Agency/Sponsor: American Council of Learned Societies


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 humanistic scholarship by enhancing established digital projects, extending their reach to new communities of users, and supporting teams of scholars at all career stages as they participate in digital research projects. ACLS grants do not support projects whose focus is the production of creative works (e.g., novels or films), textbooks, straightforward translations, or purely pedagogical projects.

ACLS will award up to five Digital Extension Grants in this competition year. Each grant provides funding of up to $125,000 for a 12-18 month project period. Projects must begin between 7/1/2018-12/31/2018 and end before 6/30/2020.
