In 2014, the ASEEES Board of Directors voted to dedicate $10,000 per year from the Association’s endowment dividends for subvention of books by first-time authors who have already secured publishing contracts. Multiple awards of up to $2,500 will be made on a competitive basis each year, with funds paid directly to the press.
A multidisciplinary committee of senior scholars will evaluate applications; the committee will also include a publishing professional as a non-voting member who will advise on budgetary matters. In deciding how to allocate these funds, the committee takes into account both the scholarly significance of the book and the demonstrated need for subvention support. Applications are invited from all disciplines.

ACLS invites applications for ACLS Digital Extension Grants, made possible by the generous assistance of The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. This program supports digitally based research projects in all disciplines of the humanities and related social sciences. It is hoped that these grants will advance humanistic scholarship by enhancing established digital projects and extending their reach to new communities of users.
This program aims to extend the opportunity to participate in the digital transformation of humanistic inquiry to a greater number of humanities scholars. To this end, projects supported by ACLS Digital Extension Grants may:
- Develop new systems of making established digital research projects and resources available to broader scholarly audiences and/or scholars from institutions such as colleges and universities that serve underrepresented student populations (including HBCUs and HSIs), as well as institutions that historically have been underrepresented in digital humanities research, such as community colleges, regional public colleges and universities, and smaller private colleges.
- Extend existing digital projects and resources with content that adds interdisciplinary reach or that diversifies the digital domain by incorporating materials or perspectives that have been underrepresented in the digital humanities.
- Enhance established digital research projects by fostering new team-based collaborations among scholars at a range of career stages, with a special emphasis upon convening and training communities of faculty and graduate students, as well as expanding opportunities for scholars from institutions with limited digital infrastructure.
- Create new forms and sites for scholarly engagement with the digital humanities.
