Digital Resources Awards

Cambridge Digital Humanities provides funding of up to £1000 to create digital resources in support of DH research. Resources may take the form of images (2D or 3D), film, audio, as well as more specialist forms of imaging and analysis (multispectral, VR etc.). In addition, the creation of sample data sets as part of the creation of larger research bids is within scope for this funding. Priority will be given to applications that can demonstrate a broader benefit to digital humanities as a whole and answer specific research questions.
Applicants should complete the awards application form, including (up to 500 words) details of the resources to be created and the research justification for their creation, and details of any anticipated follow-on bids or projects. For material held in most Cambridge collections, quotes for creating resources can be obtained from the Digital Content Unit at the University Library. For the digitisation of other material, please provide details of who will be responsible for creating the resources, including costings. 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.
