Digital Antiquity is developing a grants program to support the archiving of digital archaeological data and documents in tDAR (the Digital Archaeological Record), a new international digital repository. Reports and data shared through tDAR are made accessible to the public on the web and their long-term preservation is ensured.
CRM firms, public agencies, individuals, universities, colleges, and other organizations are invited to submit brief proposals explaining the value of the information to be contributed. A wide array of projects will be considered, such as individual projects, regional archives, and thematic research. Grants will be awarded in two categories: up to $ 2,000, and up to $ 10,000. We anticipate making approximately 40 awards. Rapid review of proposals will begin on 25 February 2011 and continue until until funds are committed.
Specific criteria and instructions will be made available by mid-December at http//digitalantiquity.org/grants.
