WASHINGTON (January 16, 2009) -- Today, a new international competition 
called the "Digging into Data Challenge" was announced by four leading 
research agencies: the Joint Information Systems Committee (JISC) from 
the United Kingdom, the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) and 
the National Science Foundation (NSF) from the United States, and the 
Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) from Canada. The 
Digging into Data Challenge encourages humanities and social science 
research using large-scale data analysis, challenging scholars to 
develop international partnerships and explore vast digital resources, 
including electronic repositories of books, newspapers, and photographs 
to identify new opportunities for scholarship.

Interested applicants must first submit a letter of intent by March 15, 
2009. Further information about the competition and the application 
process can be found at http://www.diggingintodata.org .
