The American Council of Learned Societies (ACLS) invites applications for the eighth annual competition of the Digital Innovation Fellowships.
This program supports digitally based research projects in all disciplines of the humanities and humanities-related social sciences. It is hoped that projects of successful applicants will help advance digital humanistic scholarship by broadening understanding of its nature and exemplifying the robust infrastructure necessary for creating such works.
ACLS Digital Innovation Fellowships are intended to support an academic year dedicated to work on a major scholarly project that takes a digital form. Projects may:
- address a consequential scholarly question through new research methods, new ways of representing the knowledge produced by research, or both;
- create new digital research resources; increase the scholarly utility of existing digital resources by developing new means of aggregating, navigating, searching, or analyzing those resources;
- propose to analyze and reflect upon the new forms of knowledge creation and representation made possible by the digital transformation of scholarship.
ACLS will award up to six Digital Innovation Fellowships in this competition year.
Stipends up to $60,000
Project costs up to $25,000
Deadline: October 2, 2012

During the past year, ACLS awarded over $15 million to more than 320 scholars worldwide, making it a major source of support for humanistic scholarship in the United States. Fellows’ profiles, along with research abstracts, are accessible at www.acls.org/fellows/new.
