Digital Projects for the Public grants support projects that cogently interpret and analyze humanities content in formats that will attract broad public audiences. Digital platforms- such as websites, mobile applications and tours, interactive touch screens and kiosks, games, and virtual environments- can reach diverse audiences and bring the humanities to life for the American people. The program offers three levels of support for digital projects: grants for Discovery projects (early-stage planning work), Prototyping projects (proof-of-concept development work), and Production projects (end-stage production and distribution work). While projects can take many forms, shapes, and sizes, your request should be for an exclusively digital project or for a digital component of a larger project.
All Digital Projects for the Public projects should
- present analysis that deepens public understanding of significant humanities stories and ideas;
- incorporate sound humanities scholarship;
- involve humanities scholars in all phases of development and production;
- include appropriate digital media professionals;
- reach a broad public through a realistic plan for development, marketing, and distribution;
- create appealing digital formats for the general public; and
- demonstrate the capacity to sustain themselves.
