About the NYCDH Graduate Student Project Award:
Awarded annually, the award committee solicits proposals in the spring. The proposals are judged by a group selected from the NYCDH Steering Committee, and the winners are chosen based on their intellectual contribution, innovative use of technology, and the clarity of their work plan.
The New York City Digital Humanities group brings together New York City scholars and members of the GLAM (galleries, libraries, archives, museums) community to talk about, experiment with, collaborate on, teach and learn about, and just generally commune around the digital humanities.
