CAA Publishing Grants
Meiss/Mellon Author’s Book Award
The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation awarded $60,000 to CAA to fund the Meiss/Mellon Author’s Book Award. CAA will provide funds to authors who are publishing monographs on the history of art and related subjects. The purpose of the subventions is to reduce the financial burden that authors carry when acquiring images for publication, including licensing and reproduction fees for both print and online publications.
A similar award (SAH-Mellon Author Awards) for scholars who are publishing their first monograph on the history of the built environment is being administered by the Society for Architectural Historians (SAH). For more information, please contact Beth Eifrig, SAH Assistant Director of Programs, at 312-573-1365. Both the CAA and SAH awards will provide leading authors with the financial resources to acquire images for scholarly publications.
Millard Meiss Publication Fund
From the Millard Meiss Publication Fund, CAA awards grants twice a year to support the publication of 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.
Wyeth Foundation for American Art Publication Grant
Thanks to a generous grant from the Wyeth Foundation for American Art, the Wyeth Foundation for American Art Publication Grant supports 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. For this grant program, “American art” is defined as art created in the United States, Canada, and Mexico through 1970.

The CAA Publication Grant, which presented awards in 2006 and 2007, has been suspended.
