DH@CC Grant Descriptions

1) Digital Course Development: Summer 2015, 2016, 2017

  • Application due for Summer 2015 on March 6, 2015
  • later cycles of the application will be due September 18, 2015 and February 5, 2016

25 professors will be awarded $6,000 (with five awarded in the first cycle). Money can also be requested for undergraduate or graduate assistance.

  • Application forms are available here.

Embedded within the five-year plan is a three-year cycle of digital course development micro-grants to run during the summers of 2015-17. These grants will be made by competitive application and will support roughly 24 new or enhanced course proposals. They will bring together teams of faculty and student assistants to work collaboratively to develop and integrate specific DH tools and methods into undergraduate course offerings. Faculty can propose inclusion of either an undergraduate or graduate fellow for teaching or course development as best fits their particular context (not all faculty need to make use of this option). Faculty and students will receive stipends to support their work during the summer. We will require that all faculty teams or individuals who receive a micro-grant produce a course revision or new course proposal as an outcome of the award. In order to ensure sustainability, we will require that these courses be taught at least twice in the five-year period following the development process and that they be shared with the community at a colloquium.

2) Summer Institutes: Summer 2015 and 2016

  • 2015 Institute: June 1-5
  • Application due for Summer 2015 on March 6, 201

10 professors per year will be awarded $1000 to attend

  • Application forms are available here.

There will be two one-week Summer Institutes for faculty during the first two years of the project (summer 2015 and 2016) with participation available by competitive application. Designed to increase DH capacity in Claremont, these institutes will feature a small set of curated DH tools and methods, taught by domain experts and designed to support faculty who plan to utilize these skills within an existing or newly proposed course. A major outcome of these Institutes will be a Digital Course Development proposal from each faculty participant that integrates skills and methods learned during the course of the week.
