Funding Details

Project teams will propose their own budgets, and proposals must include a rough estimate of anticipated major expenses. Generally, we’re flexible in how you use your grant funds.

Suggestions for how funds received through the Digital Research Initiative can be used include:

  • Providing stipends for project team members (student members, project managers) 
  • ​​Honoraria for guest speakers, community members, and participants
  • Covering the cost of digitization* and licensing fees for content related to the project, such as primary materials that are still under copyright
  • Subvention funding or supplementation to help cover cost of open access publication
  • Purchasing equipment (recording tools, cameras, microphone, lighting) or software, if not available on campus, for research activity
  • Providing mileage reimbursement, or to cover travel to or for community partners
  • Paying for outreach supplies, such as copying, office materials, zine production, or poster printing
  • Paying for translation or transcription services 

*Note some large scale digitization and extensive web or platform design and customization may be too costly to consider or cover fully. 

The TOME Publishing Grant also offers subvention funding to help cover open access, digital dissemination of humanities scholarship.
