About the NYCDH Student Digital Award: First offered in 2014, the NYCDH graduate student awards are open to graduate students from the NYC metropolitan area who are pursuing DH projects. Applications are judged by a board selected from the NYCDH steering committee. Winning projects are selected based on intellectual contributions to the field, innovative uses of technology, and work plans that are clear and reasonable given the time and funding available.
About NYCDH: The New York City Digital Humanities group brings together New York City scholars from area universities and GLAM (galleries, libraries, archives, museums) institutions to share their work and collaborate with each other.
