*NHPRC-Mellon Planning Grants*

*Call for Proposals*



The National Historical Publications and Records Commission (NHPRC) and 
the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation invite 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, we hope to investigate the 
possibility of creating a federated system or systems for publishing and 
sustaining digital editions.

Developing the Digital Edition Publishing Cooperatives will be a 
two-stage process for /Planning/ and /Implementation/.

Up to eight planning grants will provide funds to support the first 
stage of this multi-year endeavor, beginning no later than February 1, 
2018. Each project team will consist of a principal investigator to 
spearhead the initiative, a lead representative from each of at least 
three participating editions and the host institution(s). During the 
/Planning/ stage, each team will develop a proposal for implementing a 
Digital Edition Publishing Cooperative. Planning grants are for one year 
and up to $100,000.

All planning teams would be eligible to apply for /Implementation/ 
funding. Three implementation grants of between $350,000 and $500,000, 
each for up to three years, are expected to be awarded, for a total of 
up to $1.25 million. Implementation grants will be awarded in September 
2019, with a start date of no later than October 1, 2019. A full 
description of the program, its outcomes, and a glossary of special 
terminology, are available at:
