Endowment for partial salaries for a digital historian, a web designer, a computer programmer, two graduate research assistants, as well as software and equipment acquisitions.

The Center for History and New Media (CHNM) at George Mason University has established an international reputation for its innovative work at the intersection of new technology and the more venerable pursuit of the past. This challenge grant will endow a $3 million CHNM Infrastructure and Innovation Sustaining Fund that would support staff, software, and equipment to allow us permanently to maintain projects launched with grant funding as well as to explore emerging possibilities and technologies. This is a particularly opportune moment for CHNM to create this endowment because it has established a strong track record in history and has demonstrated its ability to raise endowment funds with a prior challenge grant. In addition, Mason is about to launch a major capital campaign and will make CHNM an important fund raising target.
