Reveal Digital is excited to announce the availability of 2018 Spot Grants for small and targeted digitization projects that fit the scope of the Diversity and Dissent Digitization Fund. These grants are available to the funding libraries as a way to kick-off the initial round of investments in digitization made possible by their generous financial support. Proposals may be submitted by funding libraries until March 2, 2018.
Based on the current funding available in the Diversity & Dissent Digitization Fund, three to four projects, each in the $5,000 – $10,000 range, will be selected to move forward. Spot Grant projects will be composed of printed material (serials, monographs, reports, etc.), that can be easily loaded into Reveal Digital’s existing platform. In future years we plan to extend our hosting capabilities to include other content types like audio and video files.
The Diversity & Dissent Editorial Board will be reviewing each proposal and making the final funding determination for this initial round of funding. In subsequent years, as the value of the fund grows and the size of the awards increase, we will be looking to the funding libraries and an interactive voting process, to help set the funding priorities.
Please send all applications to Jeff Moyer (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Proposals will be added as applications are submitted.
