Our goal is to democratize access to information.
We want to raise $50,000 to support new opportunities for our graduate students, that will allow them to take part in national and international exchange programs at other digital humanities centers and to support ideas that they generate on their own. And we want to increase the endowment for the Roy Rosenzweig Prize given each year by the American Historical Association by $25,000.
We are pleased to announce an opening donation of $25,000 for the campaign from our long-time partners at the Digital Scholar, and we hope that you will join with us today to help us raise the funds we need to achieve our goals for RRCHNM. RRCHNM is supported in part by an endowment made possible by National Endowment for the Humanities Challenge Grants awarded in 1998 and 2008. The second Challenge grant was linked to a campaign to name the Center in honor of Roy Rosenzweig. Gifts from that fundraising campaign are acknowledged on this donor board located at the entrance to the Center.
