Seton Hall University has a grant from the Booth Ferris Foundation in partnership with Ramapo College.

The grant, which totals $40,000 with matching funds from each institution, will support a joint project in which 10 faculty members from each school will integrate a digital humanities tool or skill set into a course they teach. The project, which will run during the 2019-20 academic year, will have the faculty visiting each campus on alternate months for workshops about DH tools and to see examples of the tools at work.
