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. The deadline for the receipt of applications is September 15 of each year. Please review the Application Guidelines for complete instructions.
