Bid Development Awards

Cambridge Digital Humanities provides support of up to £2000 for projects in the process of developing bids for funding in the digital humanities, supporting the practical steps towards developing coherent and realisable bids for submission to funding bodies. Activities might include identifying suitable funding calls; surveys of existing tools, technologies, standards and platforms; the shaping of digital humanities approaches and methodologies in relation to research questions; assistance with scoping and costing technical aspects; and the identification of networks and partnerships. Priority will be given to projects that can demonstrate a broader benefit to digital humanities as a field, and answer specific research questions.

Applicants should complete the application awards form, including (up to 500 words) including an explanation of the project, identification of specific areas which need to be addressed, and (where appropriate) the activities intended to address these areas. Projects should plan to complete the work before the end of April 2022.

Deadline for applications: Sunday 21 November 2021

Applications will be assessed by a panel chaired by CDH Director Professor Caroline Bassett, and applicants will be notified of the outcome in early December.
