The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation has awarded ACLS a grant of $3 million in renewed support of the ACLS Digital Extension Grant program. The Foundation’s award enables ACLS to offer three additional annual competitions for the grants.
Launched in 2015, the Digital Extension Grant program supports digitally-based research in all disciplines of the humanities and related social sciences with grants of up to $150,000. The program aims to advance established digital research projects by extending their reach to new communities of users and encouraging more scholars from a broader range of institutions in higher education to participate in digital humanities work.
“ACLS developed the Digital Extension Grant program to promote broader access to the resources and scholarly networks that make high-quality digital humanities scholarship possible and sustainable,” said John Paul Christy, director of public programs at ACLS. “We are grateful for the Mellon Foundation’s continued partnership with ACLS as we seek to amplify digital projects that combine pragmatism, innovation, and a commitment to inclusive academic excellence.”
In addition to renewing the program for three competitions, the Foundation’s award provides funding to convene ACLS grantees and other humanities scholars to participate in workshops and discuss issues of shared concern in the digital arena.
The 2018-19 ACLS Digital Extension Grant competition is now open and we are accepting applications through our online fellowship and grant administration system (ofa.acls.org). All applications must be submitted online by January 16, 2019, 9 PM ET.

Understanding the Rules of Life: Epigenetics (NSF 18-600) invites proposals which investigate heritable biological or chemical mechanisms that produce a phenotypic effect without alteration of the DNA sequence. Projects must integrate education perspectives and research approaches from more than one research discipline (e.g., biology, chemistry, computer science, engineering, geology, mathematics, physics, social and behavioral sciences) to understand epigenetic mechanisms associated with environmental change, the resultant phenotypic characteristics of organisms, and the resultant robustness and adaptability of organisms and populations. Studies that cross multiple levels of organizational complexity (molecular, cellular, physiological, organismal, population) and temporal (including evolutionary) scales, and taxa within the tree of life – both unicellular and multicellular organisms, including humans — are particularly encouraged.
Full proposals are due February 1, 2019, and can be submitted in one of two submission tracks:
(1) award duration of up to 3 years and a total budget of $500,000 or
(2) award duration of up to 5 years and a total budget of $3,000,000.
The specifics of the program priorities and areas of emphasis, as well as additional limitations and guidelines, can be found in the full solicitation.
For research in Native American linguistics and ethnohistory, focusing on the continental United States and Canada. Given for a maximum of one year from date of award to cover travel, tapes, and consultants’ fees.
Applicants may be graduate students pursuing either a master’s or a doctoral degree; postdoctoral applicants are also eligible.
From $1,000 to $3,500.
March 1; notification in May.
