Project Incubation Awards

Cambridge Digital Humanities provides initial seed funding of up to £2000 to support emerging digital humanities projects. Funding will usually be awarded to projects that can demonstrate broad significance to the field of digital humanities, while addressing specific research questions. Examples might include the development and testing of research methodologies; experimental technological work towards developing standards, tools and platforms; work towards the establishment of networks and partnerships; or the building up of digital humanities skills and knowledge in the academic community. The limited scope of the funding means that applications should be tightly focussed on particular problem areas with an emphasis on experimental approaches.

Applicants should complete the awards application form, including (up to 500 words) explaining their project, the specific areas that funding will benefit, the potential broader impact of the work proposed, and an indication of how the award will be spent. Projects should plan to complete the work by 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.
