The late EADH chair (2010-2012), Lisa Lena Opas-Hänninen, attended conferences not only in the digital humanities but also in other disciplines. She was invariably interested in and encouraging of young scholars in particular, and she also spent a great deal of time in informal conversation with a wide range of colleagues. The Lisa Lena Opas-Hänninen Young Scholar Prize was established in 2013 to honour her memory. The LLOH Prize is awarded to early-career scholars, that is, students, graduate students, or postdoctoral researchers at different conferences each year.
Prof. William Kretzschmar, Jr. presented the Lisa Lena Opas-Hänninen awards for best poster by a young scholar at the Methods in Dialectology XV banquet on Thurs. Aug. 14, 2014. The prize competition and reception were generously sponsored by the Alliance for Digital Humanities Organizations; the competition was open to students or scholars whose Ph.D. was earned less than three years earlier.

The Roberto Busa Prize is an award of the Alliance of Digital Humanities Organisations (ADHO). It is named in honour of Father Roberta Busa (b. 1913), the first pioneer of humanities computing, who in 1949 began experiments in linguistic automation as part of his research on the writings of Thomas Aquinas. This computational work was central to publication of the 56-volume Index Thomisticus, completed in 1980. The Busa award is given to recognise outstanding lifetime achievements in the application of information and communications technologies to humanities research.
