The National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) and the Institute of
Museum and Library Services (IMLS) invite applications from U.S.
nonprofit organizations to a digital humanities grant competition
sponsored by the two federal agencies. The grant program, "Advancing
Knowledge: The IMLS/NEH Digital Partnership," seeks applications for
projects that would explore new ways to share, examine, and interpret
humanities collections in a digital environment and develop new uses
and audiences for existing digital resources. Grants are intended
to spur innovation and new collaborations; advance the role of
cultural repositories in online teaching, learning, and research; and
develop collaborative approaches involving the scholarly community
and cultural repositories for the creation, management, preservation,
and presentation of reusable digital collections and products. ;

Projects must be collaborative with at least one museum, library, or
archive as an integral member of the project team. Awards normally
are for two years and typically range from $50,000 to a maximum of
$350,000. Nonprofit institutions interested in applying can find
guidelines online at
The deadline for applications is March 18, 2008, and applications
must be submitted through
<http://www.Grants.gov>www.Grants.gov. Applicants are encouraged to
contact program officers who can offer advice about preparing the
proposal and review draft proposals. Draft proposals should be
submitted six weeks before the deadline. Questions and drafts may be
submitted by e-mail to <mailto:preservation_at_neh.gov>.
