College Art Association (CAA) - Terra Foundation for American Art
Grants of up to $15,000 to USA, Canada, and International nonprofit or commercial publishers to help produce or translate scholarly manuscripts addressing the subjects of American art history, visual studies, and related topics. Applicants must submit an LOI prior to applying. Funding is intended for manuscripts that are book-length and are under contract with a publisher.
Awards will be made in three distinct categories:
Applications are judged in relation to the following: Manuscript excellence and adherence to guidelines is of utmost importance; support of the field and effective dissemination of scholarly works on American art are also primary considerations in making awards. Additionally, applications to the USA book grant will be judged in relation to the project’s international dimension.
Translation grants are open to applicants from all nations for translation of a book, published or unpublished, on a topic in American art to English, or from English to another language. For this grant, “American art” is defined as art (circa 1500–1980) of what is now the geographic United States. Applications can be submitted by the publisher or author/translator. All components (excluding the partial manuscript) must be submitted in English.
Grants for Scholarly Monographs are for manuscripts on a topic in American art that presents American art in an international context. “International context” could be defined as a body of work by an American artist completed in another country, demonstrable influence of American artwork on non-US artists, or influence of international events or artists on the work of a US artist, among others. Applications must be submitted by the publisher; applications submitted by authors will not be accepted.
The grants are especially designed to cover image acquisition and translation costs, but may be used to cover any costs related to the publication's editing and production costs. Applications that propose enhancing the visual component of the study through the inclusion of color plates or an expanded component of black-and-white illustrations will be eligible for grants, as would exceptional design requirements (maps, line drawings, charts, and tables). Reimbursement for permission and reproduction rights as well as translation costs will also be appropriate.
