We’re pleased to announce the opening of three publications grants for 2019, the Terra Foundation for American Art International Publication Grant, the Wyeth Foundation for American Art Publication Grant, and the Millard Meiss Publication Fund.

Terra Foundation for American Art International Publication Grant

The 2019 Terra Foundation for American Art International Publication Grant provides financial support for the publication of book-length scholarly manuscripts in the history of American art circa 1500–1980. The grant considers submissions covering what is the current-day geographic United States.

The deadline for letters of intent is September 15, 2018. Awards of up to $15,000 will be made in three distinct categories:

  • Grants to US publishers for manuscripts considering American art in an international context
  • Grants to non-US publishers for manuscripts on topics in American art
  • Grants for the translation of books on topics in American art to or from English.

Wyeth Foundation for American Art Publication Grant

Since 2005, the Wyeth Foundation for American Art has supported the publication of books on American art through the Wyeth Foundation for American Art Publication Grant, administered by CAA.

For this grant program, “American art” is defined as art created in the United States, Canada, and Mexico. Eligible for the grant are book-length scholarly manuscripts in the history of American art, visual studies, and related subjects that have been accepted by a publisher on their merits but cannot be published in the most desirable form without a subsidy.

The deadline for the receipt of applications is September 15 of each year. Learn more about the Wyeth Foundation for American Art Publication Grant.

Millard Meiss Publication Fund

Twice a year, CAA awards grants through the Millard Meiss Publication Fund to support book-length scholarly manuscripts in the history of art, visual studies, and related subjects that have been accepted by a publisher on their merits, but cannot be published in the most desirable form without a subsidy. Thanks to the generous bequest of the late Prof. Millard Meiss, CAA began awarding these publishing grants in 1975.

Books eligible for a Meiss grant must currently be under contract with a publisher and be on a subject in the arts or art history.

The deadlines for the receipt of applications are March 15 and September 15 of each year. Learn more about the Millard Meiss Publication Fund.
