National Historical Publications and Records Commission: Digital Edition Publishing Cooperatives – Implementation GrantsDeadline: March 1, 2019
The National Historical Publications and Records Commission (NHPRC) and the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation invite implementation grant proposals for Digital Edition Publishing Cooperatives. Working together, the Cooperatives will develop technical and human infrastructures to support the digital publication of documentary and scholarly editions and to provide for their long-term preservation, discovery, and use. This initiative responds to the urgent need of scholars and documentary editors for reliable, sustainable, authoritative, and field-driven outlets for publication and discovery of digital editions. At the same time, the Cooperatives will work together to create and sustain one or more federated systems for publishing and sustaining digital editions.
Amount: A total of up to three grants of up to $1,000,000 each is expected to be awarded for a period of one to three years.
Eligibility: Nonprofit institutions of higher learning, including colleges, universities, and other academic institutions, as well as other nonprofit organizations or institutions.
