National Museum of Women in the Arts
Grant of $50,000 to a USA author to support and outstanding proposal for a scholarly book on an individual woman artist or that brings recognition to the achievements of women artists of any period or nationality. Funds may be used to fund travel for research, translate materials not available to an English language audience, and other costs related to creating the final manuscript.
The purpose of the award is to encourage the highest quality scholarship on women artists from any time period or nationality and to enhance the role of the museum in shaping scholarly dialogue on women in the arts.
In identifying “the best proposal for a scholarly book written in English on a single woman artist or subject related to the mission of NMWA,” committee members consider interpretation of the theme or concept, the presentation of information including accuracy, clarity, and organization, and the importance of the original research to art history.
The proposed book must be able to stand on its own but could include other media (i.e. CD, DVD, online) as an additional component.
