About Digital Borderlands Research Grants

The Research Grants phase of the Digital Borderlands project, conducted between 2020-2023, supported the production and dissemination of new, open-access humanities scholarship on the U.S.-Mexico borderlands by integrating library services into a collaborative research process that emphasized data-intensive, digital storytelling. The project disbursed two rounds of funding to research teams at the University of Arizona through a competitive process. The selected funded projects employed a portfolio of the University of Library services and expertise encompassing scholarly communication, open access, data management and curation, data science, text and data mining, GIS, and distinctive archival collections on the U.S.-Mexico borderlands. Each research team was funded up to $60,000 and was allowed one year to complete their project.

The Research Grants phase of the Digital Borderlands project is nearing completion and is no longer accepting applications. For more details about Digital Borderlands Research Grants, please review our initial proposal narrative.
