Cambridge Digital Humanities supports funding applications from internal and external applicants at any career stage for projects held within the Centre. The first point of contact for new applications is the CDH Programme Manager, Sarah Williams (programme.manager@cdh.cam.ac.uk). The Programme Manager should be contacted about any potential research grant application at the earliest opportunity for support with the application and costing. It will not be possible to support funding applications that are notified less than four weeks before the funder deadline.

For information about funding opportunities, refer to the Arts Humanities and Social Sciences Research Funding pages, where you will find information on research grant schemes, fellowship schemes and internal funding opportunities.

Approval Process

All applications have to go through a two-stage internal approval process before they are submitted to the funder. This process is the same for applications led by CDH and applications led by other institutions, where a researcher in CDH is a Co-I or collaborator.

All funding applications require approval by the Directors of CDH and CRASSH at least seven days before submission to the research office.

After receiving Director approval, all applications need to be approved by the Research Operations Office before they can be submitted to the funder. Details of the approval process and deadlines can be found on the ROO website.

Any research involving human participants or personal data requires ethics approval. Information about ethics in research can be found on the University’s research ethics page.

The Programme Manager will advise you on deadlines and requirements for all approval stages for your specific application.
