Digital Humanities Planning
We provide a list of questions to consider as you design your digital humanities project. Please read through this Planning Guide and contact us if you have any questions and for the digital humanities project grant application.
The Wisconsin Humanities Council funds projects that employ digital humanities, including things like:
- short videos
- full length film documentaries
- video games
- audio projects
Digital projects may be part of a larger project such as an exhibit, or the cumulative effort of a larger humanities-based program. Projects could also be a stand-alone product such as a game or self-guided audio tour. Like other activities we fund, a digital humanities project cannot simply be archival. It needs to engage the public and be accessible. We want to see projects that encourage discussion and build communities!

Do you have a really big idea?
The National Endowment for the Humanities offers funding for digital projects that serve a wide public audience.
NEH digital grant programs include:

In August of 2018, the director of the Digital Projects for the Public at the National Endowment for the Humanities visited the WHC office in Madison to talk about “Possibilities in the Digital Humanities.” This conversation was recorded. Get to know Marc Ruppel, Senior Program Officer at the NEH, and how your ideas may fit NEH funding guidelines, by watching this video.
