Publication Subvention Program
The Archaeological Institute of America launched the Publications Subvention Program in 2005. This program offers subventions from the AIA’s von Bothmer Publication Fund in support of new book-length publications in the field of Classical Archaeology (defined as Greek, Roman, and Etruscan archaeology and art history). Particularly welcome are projects that publish the work of first-time authors or represent the publication of final reports of primary data from sites already excavated or surveyed, but are still unpublished.
The program is administered by the Publications Subvention Committee, which meets periodically to select publications for support. The deadlines for completed applications are March 1 and November 1. Grants average $5,000, though smaller or larger amounts may be awarded at the discretion of the Committee. The Committee is comprised of AIA members with scholarly expertise in the areas designated for the Grant.
Nominations should be submitted by eligible nonprofit publishers, such as university or museum presses, to the AIA Publications Subvention Committee, who will review submissions and grant the subventions. All manuscripts submitted for consideration must conform to AIA’s policies regarding the initial publication of undocumented antiquities. All authors or editors of manuscripts must be members of the Archaeological Institute of America in good standing for two consecutive years (or one year for graduate students) by the application deadline, though grants are open to scholars and nonprofit publishers of all nations. In the case of multi-authored or multi-edited publications, the membership requirement applies only to the primary author/principal investigator. These subventions are not intended to support the publication of previously published works (including collections of previously published essays) or congress proceedings.
The selected manuscripts will acknowledge the subvention with the following statement on the copyright page or on the reverse of the title page: “Publication of this book has been aided by a grant from the von Bothmer Publication Fund of the Archaeological Institute of America.” Below this statement must appear the logotype of the AIA (camera-ready or digital copy to be supplied by the Archaeological Institute of America). The subvention should also be acknowledged with this or a similar statement in announcements or publicity about the publication of the book, as well as in all advertisements insofar as possible.
