LOIs for American Art Publication Grants
College Art Association

The College Art Association is accepting Letters of Inquiry for book-length scholarly manuscripts on 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.

Through CAA's Terra Foundation for American Art International Publication Grant program, awards of up to $15,000 will be made in three categories, including 1) grants to U.S. publishers for manuscripts considering American art in an international context; 2) grants to non-U.S. publishers for manuscripts on topics in American art; and 3) grants for the translation of books on topics in American art to or from English.

Two non-U.S. authors 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.

Applicants must submit a Letter of Inquiry by September 15, 2016 . Upon review, selected applicants will be invited to submit full proposals by November 15, 2016.
