College Art Association publishing grant opportunities
The College Art Association (CAA) offers two publishing grant opportunities this fall in support of new books in art history, visual studies, and related subjects through the Millard Meiss Publication Fund and the Wyeth Foundation for American Art Publication Grant. To be eligible for either grant, the manuscript must already have been accepted by a publisher on its merits but require a subsidy to be produced in its most desirable form.
The Wyeth grant applies to books on the history of American art, here defined as art created in the United States, Canada, and Mexico through 1970. There are no geographic or chronological limitations for books eligible for Meiss awards. The publisher, rather than the author, must submit the application to one or both funds, though only one award can be given per title. Both programs have a deadline of October 1, 2012. CAA will announce the recipients of the Meiss and Wyeth grants in late November or early December 2012.
If you have a book in the works, or know someone who does, review the application guidelines, materials, and list of previous grantees on the CAA website.
