The National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) in the United States and the German Research Foundation (Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft e.V., DFG) are working together to offer support for digitization projects in the humanities. These grants provide funding for up to three years of development in any of the following areas: new digitization projects and pilot projects; the addition of important materials to existing digitization projects; and the development of tools and infrastructure to enhance the use of digitized resources and support international digitization work. Collaboration between U.S. and German partners is a key requirement for this grant category. Each application must be sponsored by at least one eligible German individual (with an institutional affiliation) or institution, and at least one U.S. institution (see Eligibility requirements below), and there must be a project director from each country. The partners will collaborate to write a single application package. The U.S. partner will submit the package to NEH via Grants.gov, and the German partner will submit it to DFG via regular postal service. (The German partner is also encouraged to submit a pdf version of the package via e-mail.) All potential applicants should note that, while NEH and DFG each host a version of the guidelines on their respective web-sites, the requirements for the application package as outlined in Section IV, Application and Submission Information, are identical. However, each set of guidelines contains some variations in grant administration procedures to be followed by successful applicants. These variations reflect the local administrative and organizational requirements of each country. Applications should explain the need for the U.S.-German partnership and the ways in which the transatlantic collections will be developed and managed.
