Grant of the Week: Terra Foundation for American Art International Publication Grant
Every week, AHA Today showcases a new grant, fellowship, or scholarship of interest to historians which has been posted to our free Calendar. Today, we feature a grant for publications offered through the Terra Foundation for American Art.
Last year the Terra Foundation for American Art awarded the College Art Association (CAA) a major three-year grant to administer an annual program to support book-length scholarly manuscripts in the history of American art. The program, now in its second year, makes funds available to US and non-US publishers through the Terra Foundation for American Art International Publication Grant. Awards of up to $15,000 will be made to US and non-US publishers for books that examine American art in an international context, increase awareness of American art internationally through publication outside the United States, allow wider audiences to access important texts through translation, or result from international collaboration. The program is designed to offset image acquisition and translation costs; however, other editing and production expenses will be considered.
The grants support publications that make significant contributions to the field in three award categories: grants to US publishers for manuscripts that consider American art in an international context, grants to non-US publishers for books on topics in American art, and grants for the translation of books on topics in American art to or from English. The program also supports the creation of an international network of American art scholars by providing two non-US authors whose books are funded through the grant program with travel stipends and complimentary registration to attend CAA’s Annual Conference.
Grant guidelines, detailed eligibility requirements, and application instructions are available on the CAA website at. For this grant program, “American art” is defined as art (circa 1500–1980) of what is now the geographic United States. Letters of inquiry should be submitted to CAA no later than September 21, 2015.
Applicants whose projects fall within the guidelines and successfully fulfill the mission of the grant program will be invited to submit full applications, due November 9, 2015. Award winners will be announced in March 2015.
