Center for Digital Research in the Humanities Excellence Fund

Center for Digital Research in the Humanities Excellence Fund

In 2010, the National Endowment for the Humanities announced it would provide the Center for Digital Research in Humanities a five-year, $500,000 challenge grant if the university is able to secure $1.5 million in private support from alumni and friends.

NEH challenge grants are prestigious awards that help universities secure long-term improvements and support for humanities programs and often require a three-to-one match from the university.

Over the next five years, the University of Nebraska Foundation, UNL Libraries and the College of Arts and Sciences will work together to raise the $1.5 million needed to receive the full $500,000. Once completed, the NEH grant and private donations will provide a $2 million permanently endowed fund to support some of the center's key programs. An internationally recognized leader in digital humanities research, the center is a joint initiative of UNL Libraries and the College of Arts and Sciences and is a UNL Program of Excellence. Please help us realize this challenge grant by making a contribution today.
