Deadline Date:

Description:

Request a Grant Writer

Grants of up to $15,000 to USA, Canada, and International publishers to help produce and translate scholarly manuscripts. Applicants must submit a letter of intent prior to submitting a full proposal. Funding may be used for manuscripts related to visual studies, history of American art, and related subjects. Projects should focus primarily on visual art made before 1980.

 Awards will be made in three distinct categories:

  • Grants to US publishers
  • Grants to non-US publishers
  • Grants for the translation of books to or from English

Eligibility

Eligibility is limited to book-length scholarly manuscripts in the history of American art, visual studies, and related subjects that are under contract with a nonprofit or commercial publisher. In particular circumstances involving non-US publishers, projects being considered for publication may also apply. Self-published manuscripts are not eligible for this grant.

Manuscripts must adhere to the subject matter of the award for which they are applying.

Scholarly books in print or digital formats from commercial and nonprofit presses are eligible for an award.

The grants are especially designed to cover image acquisition and translation costs, but may be used to cover any costs related to the publication's editing and production costs. Applications that propose enhancing the visual component of the study through the inclusion of color plates or an expanded component of black-and-white illustrations will be eligible for grants, as would exceptional design requirements (maps, line drawings, charts, and tables). Reimbursement for permission and reproduction rights as well as translation costs will also be appropriate.

Translation Grant

The grant is open to applicants from all nations for translation of a book, published or unpublished, on a topic in American art to English, or from English to another language. For this grant, “American art” is defined as art of what is now the United States and its territories and Native American visual art. Projects should focus primarily on visual art made before 1980.

Pre-Application Information:

Before submitting a complete application on December 15, applicants to all three grants are required to submit a letter of intent (LOI) by September 15. After reviewing the LOI, CAA will contact the applicant with an invitation to submit a formal application if the project is deemed eligible for an award.

A press can submit the same manuscript for other awards that CAA administers, but a book that wins one CAA publishing grant may not receive a second grant. A project that has been rejected for a grant may not be resubmitted to the same grant. Publishers are encouraged to submit no more than two books for consideration in any one grant period.
