The Digital Seed Grant had an impressive amount of applications for its second year. The proposals received were of high quality and diverse in scope. This included submissions from chemistry, aerospace, biology, FIRE, criminal justice, psychology, health and human performance, global studies, English, history, recording industry, and media arts. The Digital Seed Grant Committee commends all the applicants on their proposed research or teaching projects.

Due to the quantity and quality of proposals, the Digital Seed Grant Review Committee and Dean of Libraries decided to award two grants for the 2018-2019 year. We are pleased to announce those winners in no particular order:
