[Submissions for the 2018 award are due April 30, 2018. More information is available on the 2018 Call for Proposals.]
Since 2014, the NYCDH Graduate Student Project Award has recognized outstanding work from graduate students in the NYC digital humanities community. The purpose of the award is to encourage and support the development of outstanding digital humanities work.
Through the generous contributions of its members, NYCDH is able to award cash prizes to the top three contestants. Typically, the first prize winner receives a cash prize of $1000, and two runner-up positions receive $500 each. All three winning proposals have the opportunity to receive ongoing project support from one or more of the many centers affiliated with NYCDH. Winners also receive exposure on NYCDH.org and associated social media outlets as well as the opportunity present their work at the annual NYCDH Week Kickoff Meeting.
Project proposals can be submitted by individuals or teams. We accept proposals for projects in early or middle stages of development. We encourage prospective applicants to contact the awards committee to receive feedback on proposals prior to submission.
Proposals are judged by an awards committee selected from members of the NYCDH Steering Committee, and projects are chosen based on their intellectual contribution, innovative use of technology, and the clarity of their work plan.
