Funding: National Endowment for the Humanities: National Digital Newspaper Program

NEH is soliciting proposals from institutions to participate in the National Digital Newspaper Program (NDNP). Over a period of two years, successful applicants will select newspapers—published in their state or territory between 1836 and 1922—and convert approximately 100,000 pages into digital files (primarily from microfilm), according to the technical guidelines (76-page PDF) outlined by the Library of Congress.

Deadling: January 17, 2012 for projects beginning September 2012.
