    We are pleased to announce our seventh annual cross-institutional NYCDH
    Digital Humanities Graduate Student Project Award. We invite all graduate
    students attending an institution in New York City and the metropolitan

    The award recognizes excellent digital humanities scholarship in the NYCDH
    community. The first prize winner will receive a cash prize of $1000. Two
    runner-up positions will receive $500 each. All three winning proposals
    will have the opportunity to receive support from one or more of the many
    centers affiliated with NYCDH; support can include, when needed,
    consultations, networking and possible access to institutional resources
    (website hosting, software licenses, etc.). Winners will also receive
    exposure on and associated social media outlets, and will have
    the opportunity to present their work at our annual NYCDH Week Kickoff

    Project proposals can be submitted by individuals or teams. We are
    accepting proposals for projects in all stages of development, from early
    to mid-stage to complete.

    A detailed description of the project. Please include a discussion of how
    it engages with issues of digital methods, culture, or theory, as well as
    also the current state of the project (e.g. developing a prototype,

    phase, etc.). We accept projects at all stages of development, and
    evaluation takes into consideration the applicant’s description of the
    project’s current status. Please also describe to the best of your ability

    Optional: if your project requires or would benefit from funding, please

    including a description of the labor, digital skills, funds, and other
    resources involved. We recognize that many project do not require an
    budget, and providing one does not necessarily mean that you have access to
    the resources you need, just that you are aware of what they are.. [max
