The Caribbean Digital Scholarship Collective (CDSC) is pleased to launch its second annual micro-grant program to support digital scholarship in and about the Caribbean and its diasporas.

About the Grant

The CDSC welcomes applications from original digital humanities and digital scholarship projects at any stage, from inception to currently in development. Look at the 2022-23 microgrant recipients and read the program page for details.

The CDSC will support at least five projects from January to December 2024, offering grants ranging from USD $1,000 to $20,000. The length of the proposed project and deliverables should be completed within 12 months. Applicants need to apply for a micro-grant in one of three tiers:

  • TIER 1 ($15,000 – $20,000): Tier 1 grants are for medium to large projects that require significant expenses. For example, projects that imagine creating an artisanal tech solution that does not exist yet, such as an original cartographic interface or visualization, or projects with expensive labor and technology requirements.
  • TIER 2 ($5,000 – $15,000): Tier 2 grants are for small to medium-sized projects with readily available technology. For example, digital archives, exhibits built with Omeka or Wax, or maps created with Carto or Google Maps which need funds to pay for data curation, management, and training.
  • TIER 3 (less than $5,000): Tier 3 grants support one or two individuals as they pursue small to medium-sized digital scholarship, pedagogical or public humanities projects that they are developing themselves. Projects in Tier 3 are usually at their early stages and require further funding to come to fruition or grow in scale later. The funding tiers are flexible. If a tier does not apply to your project needs, explain in your proposal why you are applying for a different tier than the one we would have assigned to your project.
