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 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.

Two non-US authors (applicants to the grant to non-US publishers and the grant for translation) 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.

APPLICATION PROCESS, SCHEDULE, AND CHECKLIST

Process

The applicant gathers all materials listed in the checklists, below, and sends each item as a separate email attachment to Sarah Zabrodski (receipt provided).

All application components, excluding the sample manuscript, must be submitted in English.

Schedule

Applicants are required to submit a letter of intent (LOI) by September 21, 2015. CAA will contact the applicant with an invitation to submit a formal application if the project is deemed eligible for an award. The deadline to submitted completed applications is November 9, 2015. Award notification takes place in April.

GRANT TO A US PUBLISHER

This grant is open to nonprofit or commercial publishers in the United States. Manuscripts submitted for this award must be 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. Eligible publications must be under contract with a publisher. Applications must be submitted by the publisher; applications submitted by authors will not be accepted.

GRANT TO A NON-US PUBLISHER

This grant is open to nonprofit or commercial international publishers (publishers from nations other than the United States). Manuscripts submitted for this award must be on a topic in American art defined as art (circa 1500–1980) of what is now the geographic United States. Applications must be submitted by the publisher; applications submitted by authors will not be accepted.

TRANSLATION GRANT

The grant is open to applicants from all nations for translation of a book on a topic in American art to English, or from English to another language.
