TERRA FOUNDATION FOR AMERICAN ART INTERNATIONAL PUBLICATION GRANT

Background

Thanks to a generous grant from the Terra Foundation for American Art, the Terra Foundation for American Art International Publication Grant supports book-length scholarly manuscripts in the history of American art, visual studies, and related subjects that are under contract with a publisher. For this grant program, “American art” is defined as art (circa 1500–1980) of what is now the geographic United States. Awards of up to $15,000 will be made for the following categories:

  • Grants to publishers for scholarly manuscripts on American art
    • Manuscripts from US publishers must view American art in an international context
  • Grants for the translation of books on topics in American art to or from English

Two non-US authors of top-ranked awarded books will be provided a stipend for travel to CAA’s Annual Conference, complimentary registration for the conference, and a one-year membership to CAA.

Grants are available to nonprofit or commercial publishers. Applicants must submit a letter of intent by September 14, 2018. The deadline for the receipt of completed applications is December 10, 2018. Please review the Application Guidelines for complete instructions.
