    Call for Proposals: NHPRC-Mellon Digital Edition Publishing Cooperatives Implementation Grants

    The National Historical Publications and Records Commission (NHPRC) and the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation are pleased to invite implementation grant proposals for Digital Edition Publishing Cooperatives.

    Working together, the Cooperatives will develop technical and human infrastructures to support the digital publication of documentary and scholarly editions and to provide for their long-term preservation, discovery, and use. This initiative responds to the urgent need of scholars and documentary editors for reliable, sustainable, authoritative, and field-driven outlets for publication and discovery of digital editions. At the same time, the Cooperatives will work together to create and sustain one or more federated systems for publishing and sustaining digital editions.

    Several implementation grants of up to $1 million, for up to three years, are expected to be awarded, for a total of up to $3 million. Implementation grants will be awarded in December 2019, with a start date of no later than January 1, 2020.

    A full description of the program, including submission guidelines and instructions, is available at: www.archives.gov/nhprc/announcement/depc.

    Deadline for Proposals: May 1, 2019
