Fellowships Open Book Program: The National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) Office of Digital Humanities, in partnership with the NEH Division of Research Programs, is accepting applications for the Fellowships Open Book Program. This limited competition aims to award publishers a $5,500 grant to release open access digital editions of books whose underlying research was funded by one of the following six NEH programs: Fellowships; Awards for Faculty at Hispanic-Serving Institutions; Awards for Faculty at Historically Black Colleges and Universities; Awards for Faculty at Tribal Colleges and University; Fellowships for Advanced Social Science Research on Japan; or Public Scholars. Each ebook shall be released under a Creative Commons license, making those books free for anyone to download. The book could be a forthcoming title (to be open access upon first release) or it could be a book that has been on sale for up to three years before application submission. This program utilizes a greatly streamlined application process and there are three proposal deadlines per year.
