Since 2003, the NEH has allocated significant funding for a wide range of digital humanities projects at the University of Nebraska, Lincoln (UNL). Much of the NEH’s funding has supported projects that make nationally-significant cultural resources freely available to the public. These include The Walt Whitman Archive, The Journals of the Lewis and Clark Expedition, the Willa Cather Archive, and Nebraska Newspapers, which is part of the National Digital Newspaper Program. In addition to project-specific support, digital humanities projects at UNL have received two major challenge grants from the NEH, which have helped to raise an additional $2.7 million. One of these grants supported the creation of The Walt Whitman Archive; the other supported the creation of the Center for Digital Research in the Humanities' program for mentoring the next generation of humanities scholars. Cumulatively, the NEH’s support for digital humanities has helped establish the Center for Digital Research as an internationally-respected institution.
