Plus building the new DH Center with an NEH Challenge grant
Vishnu Pendyala
57:45
Can the digital humanities projects be purely theoretical or does it require software to be implemented?
Katherine D. Harris
59:15
Vishnu, DH projects for the NEH are more project oriented so you have to include sustainability into the project. If it’s a theory research publication, you might look at the NEh fellowship instead
Julia Gaudinski

@Vishnu - thanks for the question - we will ask it after her presentation.
Julia Gaudinski
01:00:09
Please do put any questions in the chat as you have them and Paula will ask them after the presentation.
Vishnu Pendyala
01:06:36
Thanks, Julia and Katherine
Ryan Skinnell
01:11:36
Is it possible to apply for multiple NEH grants in different programs at the same time?
Paula Kenyon
01:19:18
Don’t forget to put questions in the chat… we will be having a Q & A session soon.
Jason Aleksander SJSU
01:24:33
It's been a while since I applied for an NEH Fellowship, but I recall there being a drop down menu with a longgggg list of potential disciplinary homes for a project proposal. Dr. Bragg - can you walk us through how those selections inform NEH decisions about how to distribute proposals to review committees and whether the choices about disciplinary/sub-disciplinary homes for a project play a significant role in the review process?
Vishnu Pendyala
01:28:07
How can we sign up to volunteer as reviewers for the DH program?
Ryan Skinnell
01:32:28
Thank you!
Julia Gaudinski
01:34:36
There is time for a few more questions if you have them.
Jason Aleksander SJSU
01:34:39
Since SJSU faculty are eligible to apply for *either* Fellowships or Awards for Faculty (but not both), what are your thoughts about why a faculty member here might apply for one vs. the other in a given cycle?
Katherine D. Harris
01:42:52
Panelist for NEH volunteering here: https://securegrants.neh.gov/signup/
Paula Kenyon
01:43:11
Thanks, Kathy!
Katherine D. Harris
01:43:35
How does the influx of NEH funding from this year’s budget effect the programming awards? Are there more awards going to be given for each grant opportunity?
Katherine D. Harris
01:45:36
No
Katherine D. Harris
01:45:47
The larger budget afforded NEH by congress this year
Katherine D. Harris
01:51:52
Which grant is this, Paula?
Raissa Simpson
01:52:23
Please excuse me if this questions was already asked: Logistically, do the funds need to go through an institution or are individuals able to apply? I'm thinking of the collaboration between educators funding level I saw.
Paula Kenyon
01:53:02
New planning grant for Scholarly Editions and Translations

Doesn't the applicant still apply with our institutional DUNS number?
Cheyla Samuelson
01:56:20
can we watch this presentation again? I came in late.
Paula Kenyon

Proposal – https://drive.google.com/drive/u/0/folders/1NsbHUGUOjJt_Adx4rEdyZWep1JHLAh5LInstructions - https://docs.google.com/document/d/1AilSL54y6DoxMbJIhctp9u6BBz00zo3L/edit
Emma Attard
01:56:50
Yes, I'm recording it @Cheyla..
Vishnu Pendyala
01:57:01
No access to the proposal
Julia Gaudinski
01:57:05
As Paula said RF?OSP can advise but I believe individuals can add an institutional DUNS number which would be RF’s DUNS #.
Julia Gaudinski
02:04:53
Just to clarify on the individual awards: Faculty pursuing individual awards from NEH should work with Research Foundation on the front end. The award is an individual award, but RF can help make sure that faculty have dotted Is and crossed Ts.
Julia Gaudinski
02:06:02
If needed you can also ask RF about the portal questions when you apply.
Jason Aleksander SJSU
02:09:30
Thanks, Julia! And if you don't know whom to contact at the Research Foundation, please reach out to your friendly neighborhood Associate Dean of Research or Research Development Specialist for help!
Julia Gaudinski
02:13:45
Thanks Jason - yes! Your Associate Deans of Research (ADRs), Research Development Specialists and OSP Proposal Development Specialists are here to help.
Paula Kenyon
02:14:27
Please put more questions you have in the chat!
Katherine D. Harris
02:14:34
If you apply for the University Grants Academy and get Matt S. as your leader, you’ll get a really good mentor. Totally worth it for our H&A faculty to apply (due 10/25, right?)
Jason Aleksander SJSU
02:16:38
UGA applications due Oct. 22! Here are details: https://sjsu.infoready4.com/#competitionDetail/1849220
Paula Kenyon
02:17:02
Thanks, Jason!
Julia Gaudinski
02:20:08
Yes please apply to the UGA if you have not gotten an externally funded grant - we are lucky to have Matt Spangler signed up to be a facilitator for the Spring UGA.
Katherine D. Harris
02:21:00
Question: Would someone who doesn’t have experience as, for example, a scholarly editor, sit on a panel for the scholarly editing grant opportunity?
Katherine D. Harris
02:27:14
Question #2: Are review panels made up of panelists from different institutional categories? (Research intensive, teaching intensive, independent scholar)?
Vishnu Pendyala
02:28:17
What are the typical deliverables at the end of a project? Is it always a publication?
Katherine D. Harris
02:28:43
Matt, not necessarily the topic — instead, the NEH Scholarly Editions grant has specific knowledge that scholarly editors have. Or someone who doesn’t have any DH experience at all on the NEH DH grants?
Ryan Skinnell
02:33:43
I’ll just note here that I completely agree that the description of the project and its value was excellent. He wrote that in a way that connected the dots between what he knows and what he can reasonably expect non-experts to know. My sense was that he did a less strong job of drawing those kinds of connections in his specific expertise and work plan. So I thought the merits of the project were great but I wanted that level of explanation and clarity in the other parts of the narrative.
Katherine D. Harris
02:34:03
The dilemma is that R1 panelists may not know about the strategies of teaching-intensive….and R1s have more time to do things like sit on these panels
Cheyla Samuelson
02:38:01
