Request a Grant Writer

Grants of up to $6,000, $7,000, and $9,000 for USA, Canada, and International doctoral students and scholars for research activities related to historical art and cultural resources. The purpose of the program is to promote the exploration of topics that focus on American art and visual culture prior to 1980.

The grants foster firsthand engagement with American artworks and art-historical resources; build networks for non-US-based scholars studying American art; and expand access to artworks, scholarly materials, and communities for US-based scholars studying American art in an international context.

Projects eligible for consideration meet the following criteria: 

  • Research topics are dedicated to the art and visual culture of the United States prior to 1980 (i.e. visual art dating from c. 1500 to 1980, made by artists from what is now the geographic area of the United States).
  • All visual art categories are eligible except architecture and commercial film/animation. Projects should place objects and practices in an art-historical perspective.¬†
  • For projects with transnational or transcultural content, eligibility will be determined on the significance of the topic for US art history.

Funds can be used for related transportation, lodging, meals, and research fees and expenses of the Grantee only.

Book purchases in excess of $500 must be approved by CAA
