Professional Opportunities
A star with its borders in two shades of red

The American Council of Learned Societies (ACLS) is accepting applications for its new Digital Justice Grant Program. Applications are due by February 15, 2022.

This program will support the work of scholars working on digital projects that engage with the interests and histories of people of color and other historically marginalized communities, including but not limited to Black, Latinx, and Indigenous communities; people with disabilities; and queer, trans, and gender nonconforming people.

The ACLS Digital Justice Program will offer both seed and development Grants to promote and provide vital resources for projects that diversify the digital domain, advance justice and equity in digital scholarly practice, and contribute to public understanding of racial and social justice issues. For exploratory, experimental, and other early-stage work, the Digital Justice Seed Grants will offer $10,000-$25,000 to support planning workshops, prototyping, and testing of projects. For projects that have advanced beyond the prototyping or proof-of-concept phase, Digital Justice Development Grants of $50,000 to $100,000 will support activities to enhance impact and promote uptake and engagement among targeted communities of users. Both Seed and Development Grants may be held for 12-18 months.
