The Digital Ethnic Futures Consortium (DEFCon) announces the call for proposals for its third round of grants. Funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, these grants are designed to support faculty and librarians at public colleges and universities (excluding R1s) to support course and curriculum development. There are three categories of grants available:
- DEFCon Teaching Fellowships – aimed to support the development of new courses at the intersections of ethnic studies fields and digital humanities.
- DEFCon Capacity Building Fellowships – aimed at building institutional capacity at the intersection of digital humanities and ethnic studies. Capacity building includes but is not limited to: developing a minor, major, or certificate program; running professional development events for faculty; or bringing speakers to campus for workshops.
- DEFCon Mentors – to support participants in our DEFCon Teaching and Capacity Building Fellowship programs.
Applications for all categories are due January 20, 2024. More information, including details about past grant recipients, and application forms are available on the DEFCon Grants page.
