College Art Association Accepting Applications for Scholarly Art Books

When: The deadlines for the receipt of applications is September 15, 2017.

How much: When preparing the budget, the publisher should be as specific as possible about costs and the use to which grant monies will be put as the jury carefully considers financial information when making an award.
