We are happy to announce our newest Provost Digital Innovation Grant winners for the 2019-2020 academic year!

The Provost’s Digital Innovation Grants support digital projects designed, created, programmed, or administered by doctoral students at the CUNY Graduate Center. Since 2012, the grants have supported a range of inventive projects across the disciplines: an online, open-access, crowd-sourced database of scholarly relationships within writing studies; an application to support street medics and promote health and safety among activist communities; and a first effort at “Diplonomics,” a computational analysis that applies big data techniques to the study of diplomatic history.

As part of the Provost’s Digital Innovation Grant process, students propose research projects, receive informed feedback from a panel of reviewers, publicize their work on the GCDI website, share their work during the GC Digital Showcase in May; and author a white paper about their work.
