Presentation

Through our publication grants, the Terra Foundation for American Art provides support for publication projects on historical American art (circa 1500 to 1980) that make a significant contribution to scholarship and have an international dimension. “International dimensions” vary by project, but include translations of important texts on American art; publications that are written by non-U.S. scholars or that have a significant number of non-U.S. contributors; and publications with a focused thesis exploring American art in an international context. The grants are designed to advance and internationalize scholarship on American art and provide individuals outside the United States with greater access to resources in the field. Applications will be judged competitively on an annual basis. 

Awarded grants and distribution of funds

  • Books may receive a grant up to $30,000 (though generally grants do not exceed $15,000). Articles may receive a grant up to $3,000.
  • TFAA preference is to contribute toward the image rights and translation costs for a publication, though other production costs may be requested.
  • TFAA funding will not cover the entire budget for a publication.
  • Awarded grants will be announced annually each spring; monies will be disbursed when the project is in a closing stage of production (final galley proofs or the equivalent).

Eligibility

Grant funding is available for scholarly books and articles in print or digital formats that focus on historical American art (circa 1500 to 1980) and have an international dimension. These include:

  • Projects involving a United States 501(c)(3) publisher or the international equivalent. The Terra Foundation only accepts proposals from the publisher.
  • Non-U.S. based projects without a United States 501(c)(3) publisher or the international equivalent. The author or editor of the volume may apply.

Projects involving a commercial publisher based in the United States are ineligible.

Projects must be under contract for publication.

The Terra Foundation strongly encourages proposals for:

  • Books/articles examining American art in an international context,
  • Books/articles for publication outside the United States,
  • Internationally collaborative projects,
  • English-language translations of books/articles originally written or published in  another language, or
  • Translations of books/articles originally written or published in English.

The Terra Foundation does not accept proposals for new exhibition catalogues (as these are supported through our exhibition grants) or collection catalogues. Translations or reprints of exhibition catalogues originally published prior to 2005 will be considered if they contain substantial scholarship.

How to Apply

The grant application process is three-part:
