Deadline: Friday, December 20, 2019 with rolling submissions until Friday, February 14, 2020.

DARTH is excited to announce a new grant opportunity. DARTH’s Data Curation Grants support digital research projects in the arts and humanities. Recipients will receive support with entering, cleaning, and/or managing their data, with the end goal of creating a dataset used for further analysis or digital remediation.

DARTH Data Curation grants are open to full-time Harvard faculty engaged in digital research projects focused on the arts and humanities. Preference will be given to projects that have already begun collecting datasets, in any form. Awards are to be used for funding research assistants, who are typically paid $13.50-$16.50 per hour.

DARTH will connect recipients to additional relevant university resources, such as liaison librarians with expertise in acquiring data. Grant recipients are responsible for identifying undergraduate or graduate research assistants with appropriate skills and contextual knowledge for the project to succeed. Research assistants and/or grant recipients will be able to ask questions about data acquisition, modeling, storage, and management of DARTH and DSSG (Digital Scholarship Support Group) members.

Research assistants will be paid directly by DARTH and funds must be used by June 30, 2020 or they will be forfeited.  All applications will be shared with the Arts & Humanities Division.

To apply, please submit:

  • 200 word description of the project
  • 100 word description of research assistant responsibilities
  • Estimate of hours of work for research assistant and desired hourly rate
  • Names of 1-3 potential research assistants
