Up to $5,000 per participating EHCN member

Eligibility: EHCN partners

Experimental research projects that bring local concerns, narratives, and resources to a global stage through new media technologies including podcasts, websites, and social media.

Up to $2,500 per participating EHCN member

Eligibility: EHCN partners

Establishing new linked EH-related courses across multiple Network institutions, which not only use but also critically consider digital technologies and their ramifications (for example, as mediums of communication, information-sharing, and surveillance). These courses should include practice-rich modules that students from various institutions can complete, ideally in collaboration with one another.

Upto $1000 per participating EHCN member

Eligibility: EHCN partners

Topic-based action clusters that center technology, justice, and the human experience, arising out of interdisciplinary faculty/staff/student interests (such as Archives, Attention, Food, Migration, and Space & Politics) and which can yield new linked courses, research, projects, and public-facing events.

Up to $3,000

Eligibility: undergraduate and graduate students at EHCN partner institutions.

Funding for students to participate in EHCN partner projects and initiatives virtually and in person, with skills-building training. This may include: Study abroad funds to attend another Network institution with EH courses and projects for a term or a year; Summer or winter research/project employment at the student’s home institution or another Network institution; Term-time employment with EH-related programs as course tutors, skills-building workshop assistants and leaders, and research or community project.

Institution-Specific Funding Opportunities

Deadlines vary based upon institution. Please see applications for further information.

Funds to support student-led projects and initiatives that bring local concerns, narratives, and resources to a global stage through new media technologies including podcasts, websites, social media, and so forth during the 2020-2021 academic year.

Community-facing events are defined as events at each site centered on media, technology, and the humanities, tailored to the opportunities and circumstances at that locale and meaningfully involving students. These may include presentations by EH-related clusters, courses, and projects underway; relevant speakers, exhibitions, or performances open to the public; skills-building or crowdsourcing workshops such as DIY smartphone screen repair, Wikipedia editing in English or the local language, and more.

Skills-based workshops are defined as practice-rich modules paired with curriculum development, collaborative research, and/or community-engaged projects. These might include workshops on how to build websites, podcast, develop inclusive syllabi, create digital and analog maps, write interactive narratives, build virtual and augmented reality experiences, take oral histories, and more. Workshops may be online or engaged in-person.
