The NULab for Texts, Maps, and Networks is happy to announce the recipients of the Spring 2024 Seedling, Travel, and Community Collaboration Grants. Seedling grants support pilot research to catalyze a longer-term research project. Travel grants support the presentation of NULab-related research at conferences or NULab-relevant professional development opportunities such as workshops. Community collaboration grants support digital and computational projects that center community engagement, citizen science, or community co-creation. These grants have funded research assistantships, data sets needed for research, access to tools and software, and travel costs for meetings that initiate, or further, a research project.
