"Thank You" from the Simpson Center!
We are very excited to announce that, counting funds and pledges raised thus far, we are just $25,000 away from our goal of matching the NEH Challenge Grant in support of the Digital Humanities Commons! Thanks to all who have donated to this initiative, helping us move even closer toward our goal of $1,875,000!
In January 2009 the Simpson Center received a pledge and a challenge from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH). In the form of a Challenge Grant, the NEH promised $625,000 towards the establishment of a Digital Humanities Commons, IF the Simpson Center could raise 3:1 matching funds in the amount of $1,875,000, by July 2013. The funds will endow an annual summer program of UW faculty and graduate student fellowships in the digital humanities, which will begin Summer 2014.
