Description:

Request a Grant Writer

Grants of up to $15,000 to USA, Canada, and International nonprofit and commercial publishers to help produce and translate scholarly manuscripts. Applicants must submit a letter of intent prior to submitting a full proposal. Grant funds may be used to cover image acquisition and translation costs or for other costs related to the publication's editing and production. Eligible manuscripts topics are related to American art, including art history, visual studies, and related topics. Scholarly books in print or digital formats from commercial and nonprofit presses are eligible for an award.

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 will be made in three distinct categories:

  • Grants to US publishers for manuscripts considering American art in an international context
  • Grants to non-US publishers for manuscripts on topics in American art
  • Grants for the translation of books on topics in American art to or from English

The grants are 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.

Pre-Application Information:

Letters of intent have an annual deadline of September 15. The application portal will open on August 1, 2020.

Before submitting a complete application on December 15, applicants to all three grants are required to submit a letter of intent (LOI) by September 15. After reviewing the LOI, CAA will contact the applicant with an invitation to submit a formal application if the project is deemed eligible for an award.

A press can submit the same manuscript for other awards that CAA administers, but a book that wins one CAA publishing grant may not receive a second grant. A project that has been rejected for a grant may not be resubmitted to the same grant. Publishers are encouraged to submit no more than two books for consideration in any one grant period.
